Are men or women more likely to have varicose veins?

Varicose veins are stretched, dilated veins whose valves do not work properly. The Arizona Heart Institute & Foundation reports that women are three times more likely to develop them than men, and people whose jobs require them to stand for long amounts of time often develop them.
