However, if the temple is very tender to the touch then we will be worried about something called giant cell arteritis. Are you having any numbness in the jaw or face? 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

What causes distended veins on the temple. I have this mainly on right side, no migraine, but i can feel a slight throbbing when they are distended.

Simple: It is a cosmetical issue not a disease if we are talking vein. One has to be careful as the temporal artery is there too and one can easily confuse between the two, the artery will pulsate not the vein. I have taken care of many of these cases as veins can be closed with sclerotherapy. No artery should be injected as skin can slough off! ...Read more
