tongue swollen veins engorged underneath ?

Normal

Open-uri20121204-24555-1jbofe0
the under side of the tongue normally has bulging veins. If you never looked at it closely it may look abnormal. See your dentist or an ENT to make sure it is not out of the ordinary.

Dr. James E. White answered:

Why would the veins under my tongue be dark in colour?

Common

Open-uri20121105-25182-jc25n1
This is common and most likely normal. There is a large number of superficial veins just below the under surface of the tongue. This is the reason that medications can be absorbed into the blood stream by placement medications "under the tongue". The overlying skin of the base of the tongue is very thin. Thus, veins may look prominent and dark in color.

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

Veins
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.

I got a tooth (19) extracted Wednesday, today Thursday 1 day since. I noticed some blown veins under my tongue, and some swelling. Anything to worry?

Probably not

Veins
Look at both sides under your tongue, if it looks the same then most likely your natural anatomy. If one side is reder, it is possible that the suction got on the tissue and just caused a little localized bleeding. check with your dentist at the post op visit

I'm 19 and a smoker. My tongue hurts under the right side so I looked at it and there are darker veins and it looks irritated. Could this be cancer?

Probably not esp

given your age, but stop smoking and see your doctor. Oral cancer is possible with smoking (and using chewing tobacco as well).
