Bleeding from Legs


At the Goldman Vein Institute in Jupiter, Wellington and West Palm Beach, Florida we understand that varicose veins are more than a cosmetic issue. Most people with varicose veins experience symptoms such as swelling or a sensation of heaviness in the legs. More serious symptoms, such as spontaneous bleeding or ulcers, require immediate attention from a certified vein specialist.

If you experience bleeding from the legs due to varicose veins, it is important to elevate the affected leg and apply pressure until the bleeding stops. Dr. Goldman and Dr. Varghese-Goldman, our vein specialists, strongly encourage patients to treat varicose veins to prevent the risk of life threatening hemorrhage, or bleeding from the legs.

Increased Risk Factors for Bleeding Veins in the Legs

Bleeding varicose veins in the legs are a rare but serious condition, which may be worsened by small bumps and cuts. Risk factors that increase the likelihood of bleeding from the legs include:

• Diagnosis of varicose veins
• Previous /hemorrhaging issues
• Venous skin ulcers, or stasis leg ulcers
