doctor i m 19 yr old girl. since last 2 mths veins behind my kness and near armpits hv become swollen. initially they looked like stretch marks. can you pls advise?
i cn upload photos if required.

Such swollen veins are not a problem medically.

There can be change of vein shape and size throughout life.

Possibly you have been exercising more or standing more. These veins have become bigger slowly over a long period of time and it is just that you happened to notice them now.

There is nothing to worry about this. If they are a problem cosmetically, such enlarged veins can be treated by laser or cryo, but that is only if they are quite visible, for example in the face.

In these regions you really do not need to do anything.

Do have your doctor take a look at them the next time you go for any checkup.
