I'm 23, Noticed Dark Blue Veins Chest Breasts, And Nipples. Is This Anything To Be Worried About?

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)

Answer

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
