But if they become more and more prominent, or bulge, see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a throbbing vein on the left side of  my forehead, what are the causes, should I be worried?

Likely tension headache: Most of the time when you have a throbbing area near the temple it's likely due to a migraine or tension headache.

Are you having any issues with your vision? If you don't have the symptoms above then I would just recommend watching this and hopefully it will result soon. ...Read more
