Not likely a problem: since there is no pain,swelling,redness,tenderness,history of trauma,bruising.Try an experiment.While looking at your prominent veins on the back of your hand,lift up the hand above your head and watch them disappear. PS I looked up your location and your village is beautiful.Go out and have a nice walk.Show your friends your cool disappearing veins.☺️
