Are blue veins on chest from weight gain?

Are blue veins on chest from weight gain?

Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females and they may be related to hereditary factors or even pregnancies. Weight gain or loss may affect them. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

What causes blue veins to show under your skin on your thighs and chest which started since weight training?

What causes blue veins to show under your skin on your thighs and chest which started since weight training?

Result of Wt loss!: It is due to loss of fat under the skin, and as the underlying muscles get bigger with training, the veins become prominent. The veins are located just under the skin, then fascia, under which the muscles are located. I am sure yeins become prominent elsewhere else also, but one sees them easily on the thighs and chestwall, while those on the back or back of thighs/legs are not seen easily. ...Read more

Why do I see blue veins on my chest and arms?

Why do I see blue veins on my chest and arms?

Blue veins: I agree with dr. Killian the blue appearance of your veins is probably entirely normal. It isn't the color of the blood that makes them blue (all blood is red all the time), it is the location of the vein in relation to your skin that make them blue. Veins that are closer to the surface of the skin are redder. Veins that are just below the surface of the skin are bluer. ...Read more

Is it normal to see blue veins on your breasts, nipples and chest?

Yes: This is completely normal. It is nothing to be concerned about. If there is a significant cosmetic concerned you may want to speak with a dermatologist or vascular doctor in order to discuss cosmetic treatment.

Had clavicle repair surgery 8 yrs ago, now can see blue veins on that side of my chest? Due to stretching during surgery?

Had clavicle repair surgery 8 yrs ago, now can see blue veins on that side of my chest? Due to stretching during surgery?

No: The clavicle is in close proximity to subclavian vein which drains the arm. That is where nodes involved with breast cancer exist. The vein actually comes in contact with the sternoclavicular junction so that any surgery in that region may have resulted in partial thrombosis. With blood not being effectively drained from the arm, collaterals begin to open which can appear as chest wall veins. ...Read more
