No: There is nothing to treat here. If he has a large stomach that could be why the veins are engorged. If the veins go back to normal appearance when he elevates or when he wakes up in the morning, watch for now. ...Read more

Why are veins popping out of my legs?

Why are veins popping out of my legs?

Venous insufficinecy: Visible veins on the legs are the result of venous insufficiency. The insufficiency may be in the skin [resulting tiny spider veins], or below the surface of the skin [ causing tiny and varicose veins] or in deep veins. It is best to have this evaluated by a vein specialist, often with aid of an ultrasound to see how best to treat. Now treatments are simpler and more effective than ever. ...Read more

What is the cause of veins popping out on my feet? It's also started popping out around my breast. What could it be from?

Multiple reasons: Veins return blood back to the heart and can carry a large volume of blood. Depending on many factors including levels of hydration, genetics, outside temperature and even physical activity, the size of the veins will vary. Another important function of the veins is to help control body temperature and this too will affect vein size. Also with aging, veins enlarge as tissue volume decreases. ...Read more

Veins popping out red irritated tongue, near the back right side. What could this be? I am a smoker and I'm concerned I'm seeing a ENT doc monday

Red tongue: On the undersurface of the tongue there are usually many blue veins or varicosities. It is considered normal. A red, red tongue isn't and should be checked out. I know from experience, how hard it is to quit smoking, but it is so important for oral and systemic health. I don't know of any positive health benefits from smoking, just tragic results. ...Read more

What can you do when you have a popping vein on your temple?

What can you do when you have a popping vein on your temple?

Watch out!: While there are veins in the temple that are popping out (see www. Gorenveincenter. Com) easily treatable I suggest to be cautious as in the area you can find the superficial temporal artery that is some people is really visible. It pulsates that is sometimes difficult to feel but a ultrasound examination will easily detect the pulsations synchronous with the heart rate. Should not be injected! ...Read more

I'm 18 years old and I have bulging veins on my temples. They pulsate and I have been very anxious that this is serious. No pain when I touch them.

Arteries throb.: The temporal arteries and temporal veins lie immediately adjacent to each other. During exercise or increased activity, the arteries will pulsate because of increased heart rate and flow of blood. What you are seeing is the arterial pulsation. It looks like the vein pulsating because the vein sits over the artery and can move with the artery. ...Read more

What causes bulging veins in left wrist? When raising above head veins go normal when laying them down they bulge again

Bulging Veins: Bulging veins in the hands and wrists are often associated with aging, being thin and well hydrated. When the arms are down the blood in your veins have to work against gravity to return to the heart. When you raise your arms the blood flows with gravity to move more quickly toward the heart. Unlike the arteries which pulse blood, the movement of blood in the veins is more passive. ...Read more

Weak: Weak pulse and bulging veins in one limb could indicate a serious problem with the blood vessels in that region. Such problems, which include something called arterial dissection and something called venous thrombosis, could threaten the limb or your life. These sort of symptoms should be evaluated right away. Problems with the large arteries and veins in the neck or in a limb are usually first tested with an ultrasound, using a probe placed on the skin. There is usually no discomfort involved. ...Read more

I hv big bulging veins, but I work out alot is that good or bad to hv bulging veins?

Bulging veins: Bulging veins can occur from working out for several reasons: the intraabdominal pressure is increased and the veins will dilate and more blood is flowing so the veins will also enlarge. This is normal and is nothing bad. If however, you have bulging varicose veins of the legs then this is abnormal and is due to malfunctioning valves of the saphanbous vein, . ...Read more

I used the pointer finger for a lot of things, however lately I am seeing the vein popping out and a glue like sensation? What is going on??

Going out on a limb!: It may not be a vein that's popping out. It's more likely that what you see is the extensor tendon, the tendon on the top of the finger that allows you to straighten it out. If the tendon becomes inflamed, then it may become swollen & your finger might not extend smoothly. A nodule in the tendon (trigger finger) can cause a similar sensation. Please see a doctor. ...Read more
