The pain on my chest can be increased when I press on that spot on my stomach. Looking down at my stomach it is 1 inch to the side and down from my belly button. The new veins and spider veins are in the middle of my sternum, left breast, neck and shoulder, behind my left ear and left eyelid. There is no swelling or redness on either site. I have always had breast lumps on that side that are checked every second year by mammogram. I had an Ultrasound in the Spring because of unexplained bleeding, it showed no cysts.
