Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females and they may be related to hereditary factors, weight gain or even pregnancies.

What can cause blue veins on your breasts?

Common: Sometimes they seem to appear after breast surgery, such as augmentation. However, they are not uncommon even in someone who has not had this procedure. These are really just normal veins, perhaps more visible because they are close to the surface of the skin and possibly because they might enlarge over time. In my experience, they often respond well to gentle sclerotherapy.
