Loss of facial fat and thinning of the skin can make veins appear more prominent. Distal obstruction or heart pump failure can make veins appear enlarged or distended.

On my left side on neck the vein pops out, why?

On my left side on neck the vein pops out, why?

Normal: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain. With straining, the pressure within the chest increases and the blood flow through the neck veins decrease resulting in them enlarging. This is normal.

Jugular: The most prominent vein in the neck is the jugular vein that drains into the chest and then the heart via the superior vena cava...As it is in such close proximitry to the heart it will reflect the strength of the heart..In halation will make the vein collapse while straining wil produc ehte opposite effect. ...Read more

While. What is the cause of my bulging neck vein when angry and how can I hide it?

While. What is the cause of my bulging neck vein when angry and how can I hide it?

Calm down: Anger causes one to strain, thus increasing the pressure within the chest. This pressure is transmitted to the veins in the chest, and upwards to the head and neck area, resulting in bulging veins, increased redness.
