My neck veins are protruding why?

My neck vein above my left collarbone is always very visible almost bulging w/pulse. I've never had this before. What could cause this ?

The more likely cause is that it is just a normal variant. We all have a little abnormality or asymmetry with one thing or another. ...Read more
