vein on forehead

Postby ny2125 » Wed Sep 05, 2007 5:36 pm

i notice a vein near my temple/side forehead region today. it seemed to be sticking out or rather noticeable to me. then an hour later i could barely see it. i think i have seen it before but for some reason it caught my attention. it doesnt hurt or anything. what could this be? do veins on the body sometimes get bigger then go down? any suggestions would be great. thanks.

Hi Ny2125,

The area you are describing does have a larger vein that runs across there. It can, at times, be more prominent than at other times. This is normal.

Best wishes.
