I have swollen blood vessels when  hands are hanging, if I hold them above  the chest level, they look normal.Is it normal?

Probably: Blood pumped by the heart goes to the hand in arteries and comes back in the veins, which have no pump. Veins have a thin wall and are easily distended. Gravity pulls the blood down, distending the veins. Lifting the arms pulls blood back to the heart and the veins shrink. Further tests would be needed if arm elevation did not empty the veins. ...Read more

See answer: If having no significant pain, likely just a rupture of a superficial blood vessel(s) and local ice pack, avoiding erections/intercourse, and observation may be all that you need. May take couple of weeks for discoloration to completely resolve. If you are having pain, swelling is worsening, bleeding from meatus, or are concerned, you should either go to the er or see a urologist within 24 hrs. ...Read more

Are their any blood vessels near the tragus part of the ear? I feel a swollen lump in that area could it be an anurysm?

Not likely: You are probably feeling a swollen lymph node. If you are sick it is related. If you are not and it hasn't gone down you should be checked out. While of course there are blood vessels there. It is quite unlikely that you have an aneurysm. You doctor's examination will help figure it out. ...Read more

I accidently burned the front side of my head with straightening iron it hurts really bad did this cause any damage to blood vessels or anything?

Unlikely : The burn you have, even though I'm sure it's quite painful, is likely too superficial to come in contact with any blood vessels on your forehead. You can consider taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for your pain. Also, applying a cool (not icy cold) compress to the area may be helpful. Best wishes. ...Read more

What does it mean if the blood vessels in my head are inflamed?

What does it mean if the blood vessels in my head are inflamed?

Vasculitis: The cause of most forms of vasculitis ( inflammation of blood vessels) is unknown. However we know the immune system plays a role. The immune system is meant to protect the body, but when it becomes "overactive" due to some unknown trigger it can cause inflammation in the blood vessels. This causes narrowing of the blood vessel, decreased blood supply which can cause damage to surrounding tissues. ...Read more
