Pulsation: The vein most likely is touching the radial artery and moves as the artery pulsates. If this pulsation is much more noticeable than the pulsation of the left radial artery, I would check the blood pressure in both arms to see if there is a significant difference and to see if there is abnormally high bp in the right arm. A vascular surgeon could also check for an aneurysm of the right radial arter
