I had my period but my breasts are sore and there is visible blue veins on my chest, what might be the cause?

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

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
