Buttock veins.: Buttock veins are not the routine for location of varicose veins and when they occur, sources for them such as the saphenous vein, branches of the saphenous vein or even reflux from pelvic and ovarian veins need to be considered. A venous duplex ultrasound of the leg veins may help and, sometimes, a CT scan of the pelvis may be necessary. See a vein specialist.

Maybe nothing: Often, bulging veins in your calves are completely normal, especially if you are slender and exercise frequently. On the other hand, bulging veins can be a sign that you have underlying vein trouble that you can't see, even if your veins don't hurt. An ultrasound evaluation of your veins will tell you what is going on. I would see a vein specialist for a check up and treatment if indicated.

Or in disease states when they become dilated due to insufficiency or back flow [ eg varicose veins are the result of venous insufficiency] or overloaded from increased flow [much less common]. Sometime veins may only appear to bulge when people are have low body fat or vein high muscle tone.

Veins: Are these on your legs? You are young to have varicose veins, but they surely can be painful. Especially during the menstrual cycle for many women. These can be treated with either laser or "stripping". Compression stockings help quite a bit with symptoms and to prevent worsening of them. Also, avoid standing for long periods, and try not to sit with legs crossed.
