I'm 23, definately NOT pregnant and have noticed prominent blue veins down my chest and breasts, and on and around the nipples. is this anything to be worried about? Additional info:  I have put on weight in the last 6 months which meant I went up a cup size. Also, become quite tender around menstruation. (last 2/3 cycles)

Doesn't sound at all like a breast cancer symptom, especially as it's happening on both breasts; breast cancer nearly always presents in only one breast at a time. Tenderness is very usual, especially around your period. Sorry I can't shed any light on this, other than to say it doesn't sound cancer-related - PJH
