Spontaneous and sudden bleeding from a vein is known as phleborrhagia. Veins can burst and rupture when they become enlarged and weakened due to underlying vein disease.
This vein condition occurs when a blood clot forms in a deep vein within the body, most often in the lower leg, thigh, or pelvis. If left untreated, it can lead to a severe medical emergency.
These small, damaged veins often appear on the skin’s surface with a spider-web-like appearance. They’re caused by an irregularly functioning vein valve.
These common pin-head-like lesions appear on the skin in a bright red color.
They are usually harmless and are not tied to any underlying conditions, but they can cause random bleeding if they’re in a high-contact area.
Quick and easy removal is the best treatment option.
Unwanted chest veins are a common problem for women. They are often caused by pregnancy, breast augmentation surgery, or chronic sun exposure.
Blue-green reticular veins may become more pronounced following changes in the breast tissues, while small red spider veins are often a result of chronic sun exposure.
Telangiectasias, or facial veins, are pink, red, or purple in appearance.
They commonly occur around the nose, chin, and cheeks.
Genetics can play a large role in their development, along with chronic sun exposure, alcoholic beverages, hot and spicy foods, rosacea, and environmental irritants.
Port wine stains are a type of birthmark made up of a collection of blood vessels.
They can be pink, red, or dark maroon in color. They tend to darken in color over time as a child grows into adulthood.
A venous lake is a type of vascular malformation that commonly occurs on the lips. They are dome-shaped and result from a collection of enlarged veins under the skin.
They are typically dark purple or blue in appearance.
If a venous lake is large and raised, it can become irritated, itchy, and sore. For most, venous lakes can bleed easily when directly impacted.
