Hello, I noticed today I have a line of spider veins (I assume to call them) on my left rib cage under my breast. Can you tell me causes?

Spider veins: Visible "spider" veins represent veins which have lost their valvular competence, and are dilated (widened) which makes the blood contained in them static and visible. The location described is unusual and not related to a cause for alarm, but is coincidental to straining or a former blow to the area resulting in obstructing the flow of the veins seen. ...Read more

My breasts have been sore everyday for 9 days (since ovulation). Today I noticed tiny spider veins on my left side of my breast. Is something wrong?

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. No treatment is necessary unless for cosmetics. ...Read more

I have a quarter sized red circle on my breast came a week ago. Its not raised, no texture, not itchy, spider veins coming off it. Not ring worm?

Irritation?: Dermatitis is a red circular rash. It could be that. You can try Hydrocortisone 1% cream 3 times a day for a week. If that doesn't work then you should be seen to find out what it is. Ringworm is itchy and raised, so that is not likely in your case. ...Read more

Veins around chest very visible until shoulder extending to arm. Looks like spider veins in chest. Doesn't hurt, concerned why they look so dramatic?

Not concerning.: The prominence of veins through the skin is affected by many factors including levels of hydration and dehydration, body temperature as well as outside temperature, medications and even levels of stress. Fair skinned people tend to have more easily visible veins than darker individuals and hereditary plays a strong role also. In a healthy person, visible veins are usually not of any concern. ...Read more

Legs, arms, & chest, even (face sometimes) turn blue when feeling cold or jst standing up for a little. Ever since got lots of spider veins. Help? Thnx.

Circulation/Raynauds: Turning blue when exposed to cold is an extreme reaction to what the body normally does in response to the cold. When cold, the blood vessels in the extremities and superficial skin constrict to conserve heat. This occurs more drastically for some, and may even turn the skin blue or cause pain in some people. This can be associated with other disorders and it is important to have it evaluated. ...Read more

Are spider vein a symptom of fatty liver. Alt 64. Ast 50. I have noticed a few small spider like veins on my chest area.

No: Spider angiomata are one of the commonly recognized stigmata of cirrhosis of the liver. They are red skin lesions composed of a central arteriole surrounded by many smaller vessels.

Though "spiders" are linked with cirrhosis they are not specific for it, and can be seen in other conditions including pregnancy and healthy people. ...Read more

I've gained 10lbs in last month. Breasts are larger now and spider veins appeared. Last 4 periods were short and super light. Spotting. Pregnant???

Maybe not, but...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 1 week after missing a period, or 1 week after starting a "weird" period. ...Read more

I have regular on time periods. This month it was 3 days late. Then light bleeding for 2 1/2 days now nothing. Could this be early pregnancy? I've been bloated Fuller breasts and a little nauseous.

I have regular on time periods. This month it was 3 days late. Then light bleeding for 2 1/2 days now nothing. Could this be early pregnancy? I've been bloated Fuller breasts and a little nauseous.

One can wait a week: Because a woman cannot have her normal regular period and also be pregnant at the same time, either she is not pregnant or the bleeding is not her regular period. The simplest way to figure this out is to do a home pregnancy test after 1 more week. The test result will probably be negative in this particular case. ...Read more
