Thanks for posting your query.
The prominent vein on the side of your neck while eating is due to an increased vascularity in the area due to the work done by the muscles while eating. Please do not worry. This is just a physiological variation and is not indicative of any disease process.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
