Is it normal to see blue veins on your breasts, nipples and chest?

Yes: This is completely normal. It is nothing to be concerned about. If there is a significant cosmetic concerned you may want to speak with a dermatologist or vascular doctor in order to discuss cosmetic treatment.

I have very visible blue veins on my breasts and nipples since having my last child 6 years ago. Surgery or prevention tips?

Wait and watch: If the veins are not causing any symptoms and are not a cosmetic issue for any one other than yourself or your partner, it would be prudent to leave these alone. Treating such an issue is likely to be more trouble that it may be worth. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

30 days late. I took a few test and all negative. Symptoms are breast enlargement, burning nipples, blue veins in breast and chest. Could I be?

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

I've noticed that from mid chest area blue veins and progresses to my nipples. Also I have tender breast & my nipples now hurt, should I be concerned.

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 or even pregnancies. No treatment is necessary unless for cosmetics. ...Read more

PG test first, then.: First, do a pregnancy test as "pre cum" can cause live sperm to impregnate you. If the test is negative, then the sore breasts may simply be a function of excess hormone (estrogen) stimulation. See a GYN MD or clinic if you still have any concerns. ...Read more

Fair skinned. Part-time breast feeding 3.5 mos. Armpit swelling & can now suddenly see more blue veins across my chest & shoulders. Cancer?

Fair skinned. Part-time breast feeding 3.5 mos. Armpit swelling & can now suddenly see more blue veins across my chest & shoulders. Cancer?

Nah: The blue veins are typical for breastfeeding moms, your superficial veins are expanding to provide more blood flow to the area. I had these too while I was nursing. As far as the armpit swelling, I need more detail to understand the significance of this, are there painful bumps? Overall swelling? I suggest you followup with your primary care doc on the armpit swelling soon. ...Read more

Had clavicle repair surgery 8 yrs ago, now can see blue veins on that side of my chest? Due to stretching during surgery?

Had clavicle repair surgery 8 yrs ago, now can see blue veins on that side of my chest? Due to stretching during surgery?

No: The clavicle is in close proximity to subclavian vein which drains the arm. That is where nodes involved with breast cancer exist. The vein actually comes in contact with the sternoclavicular junction so that any surgery in that region may have resulted in partial thrombosis. With blood not being effectively drained from the arm, collaterals begin to open which can appear as chest wall veins. ...Read more

Why do I see blue veins on my chest and arms?

Why do I see blue veins on my chest and arms?

Blue veins: I agree with dr. Killian the blue appearance of your veins is probably entirely normal. It isn't the color of the blood that makes them blue (all blood is red all the time), it is the location of the vein in relation to your skin that make them blue. Veins that are closer to the surface of the skin are redder. Veins that are just below the surface of the skin are bluer. ...Read more
