Ankle veins.

The posted veins around the ankle are often a sign of malfunctioning valves (reflux) of the saphenous system of veins.  Due to the increased back pressure in the veins more veins begin to form.  See a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation with a venous duplex ultrasound.

Veins near ankles

Clusters of visible veins over the ankles, especially the inner (medial) ankle can be a sign of venous reflux disease. These veins may be opening up due to high pressure from blood pooling in larger underlying veins. I recommend seeing a vein specialist and having an ultrasound to determine if you have venous reflux disease.
