Broken Blood Vessels On Chest
Possible: Superficial veins or t-matts on the chest and abdomen can be associated with cirrhosis of the liver. However, t-matts alone without other symptoms are just that, superficial spider veins of the chest/abdominal wall. Thin patients will limited fatty tissues, very fair skin patients may have more visible veins just due to color. If you note a dramatic increase in t-matts physician review is in order. ...Read more
I have swollen blood vessels when hands are hanging, if I hold them above the chest level, they look normal. Is it normal?
Probably: Blood pumped by the heart goes to the hand in arteries and comes back in the veins, which have no pump. Veins have a thin wall and are easily distended. Gravity pulls the blood down, distending the veins. Lifting the arms pulls blood back to the heart and the veins shrink. Further tests would be needed if arm elevation did not empty the veins. ...Read more

Radiologist: In such cases I believe it's the responsibility of the primary care physician to sit down with the radiologist who interpreted the xray and review the findings, and get a differential diagnosis from the radiologist and then the two of them conclude whether further imaging studies such as a ct scan is advisable. After such consultation with the radiologist your physician will be able to advise you. ...Read more

You should see your doc ASAP and get a work up. ...Read more

Many things: Hemoptysis or coughing up blood from the lungs has several causes. Blood tinged sputum can happen from repeated, forceful coughing.

Hi. I woke up this morning with a bruise on my left breast. It looks like burst blood vessels. What would cause this? Thanks
Watch for 1-2 weeks: A bruise on the breast can be caused by trauma which can cause bleeding under skin especially if you are taking aspirin but it can also be somethings less likely like a bleeding disorder, low platelets or rarely, a tumor can show up with a bruise. If it is painless (non- tender) then it is unlikely due to trauma. Watch if it changes or gets bigger, then go see your doctor. Otherwise it may go away ...Read more

I had a blood clot in my left bicep 5 years ago. Clot is gone, but now why do I have big green veins on my left bicep, chest & left ribs instead?
Collaterals: You thrombosed more than your "biceps". You are fortunate you just have this. Your thrombus probably occluded the drainage from your entire upper extremity. The blood now gets back from your arm via a different route. Mr. Stallone had the same thing happen while making "Cliffhanger" and covered the new veins with a tattoo. ...Read more
