i am 19 and i have probably had a large vein on my breast for months now if not years.i never paid much attention to it, but after seeing the "know your lemons" picture i am quite worried. i have no other symptoms, no family history. veins are visible on the other breast too, but my vein on the right breast looks exactly "know your lemons " one! and I can feel the vein when i touch it. i did gain a lot of weight over the last two years due to eating disorder recovery and i have quite large breasts ( e cup)

are veins normal? should i see my doctor about this.?

Hi rosiexmary,

We're so sorry you're here and worrying. But, we can tell you that at your age, it's highly unlikely that this vein is anything to worry about. However, it's great that you're being diligent about your breast health, and we always suggest bringing any concerns to your doctor, if only just to give you peace of mind.

Please keep us posted with what you find out.

I've always had a large vein on my right breast. It doesn't mean a thing. When I got cancer, it was on the left.
