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.

In a healthy person, visible veins are usually not of any concern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My veins are very visible and green in my chest/breast area as well as my shoulders and arms. Should I be concerned or what could be causing this?
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. See a vein specialist to evaluate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Seemingly overnight, my veins have become very visible in my legs, arms and chest. Is this something to be concerned about? 31/f, 108 lbs, normal bp
?: Veins are thin-walled, low pressure structures that fill when gravity allows it (when in a dependent position) and collapse and become less visible when placed above the level of the heart. Dilated veins on the legs and arms, when below the heart, are normal but not on the chest in a 31 yo thin woman. Perhaps you've just noticed them, but if not, you should be examined. ...Read more

During venipuncture yesterday, the needle went through the arm vein. Now the ulnar nerve is paining. No visible hematoma. Is it internal bleeding?
Possibly irritated: I don't understand how venipuncture can get to the ulnar nerve but it can certainly puncture some other nerves. I suspect that the pain will be transient lasting no more than a week . If the problem persists beyond that or not improving, better contact your doctor Ice the area if the pain is unbearable. ...Read more

Why are the 'blue' veins in my arms/hands/chest suddenly much more visible? Heart checked last year, and blood test just two weeks ago, all clear.
Positional: When you place your arms and legs lower than your heart, they fill and become prominent. When they're above your heart, they collapse and appears as "streaks." Also, when you're well tanned, they're less visible. AS your tan fades, you see them better. Darker veins are NOT a sign of disease! ...Read more

Can it be normal to have very visible veins on arms, legs, and chest/breast even at 35? I'm pale and very thin. Petrified of vascular ehlers-danlos.
