Varicose veins are formed when the valves controlling the blood flow become weaker and fragile. This causes swelling in the vein that protrudes from the skin but it remains at one place only.

A 42-year-old man went to the doctor for the treatment of a red intense line on his foot. Doctor thought that it was just a varicose vein at first glance. But when he looked closer, it was something horrible that was waiting to be revealed.
