More viable veins on breasts/nipples including little dark blue ones, what could be causing this? (Excluding pregnancy and menstrual cycle)

More viable veins on breasts/nipples including little dark blue ones, what could be causing this? (Excluding pregnancy and menstrual cycle)

Probably normal : With age under 20, it is unusual to find very serious breast abnormalities. Remember that breast tissue may swell at various times throughout the menstrual cycle. Some superficial veins may become more prominent throughout your cycle. It is not normal to find a mass or bump that you can feel or if you have nipple discharge. If you have pain and specific part of your breast, it's good to see a Doc.

Lump mastitis: For your age any signs of infection you should see your GYn or F/d asap especially with lumpy breasts and if confirm infection it should be treated with antibiotics for a coarse and follow up mandatory as if unresponsive it can be serious to rule out remote possibility of inflammatory breast tumor although it is very rare but not impossible.

Last period ended. Feb 13th, I have sore swollen breats hard under both  nipples to touch. To early to take a pregnacy  test what else could it be?

Progesterone effect: Although this could be pregnancy, many women get very sore and swollen breasts during pms which occurs in the week prior to a period. Based on your last menses, you should be in this time of your cycle when Progesterone levels are high and breasts can respond as you have felt. Definitely take a pregnancy test though if your cycle is late.
