Are venous ulcers serious?

A venous skin ulcer is a sore on your leg that's very slow to heal, usually because of weak blood circulation in the limb. They can last anywhere from a few weeks to years. You may hear a doctor or nurse call them “venous leg ulcers.” They can sometimes lead to more serious problems if you don't have them treated.
