Feel a vein extending, no pain, feels while pressing, colonoscopy done last year

I sometimes feel a vein extending from my upper rib cage down the right side of my torso. There is no pain but I can feel it. It only appeared over the past two weeks. There is no buldge but I can feel it if I press on it. I went to my doctor and she seems to think I could have picked up something that would have put too much pressure on that side of my body. I am otherwise a healthy 61 yr old female. I had a colonoscopy last year and I have a healthy colon and a clear mammogram . What do you think this could be?

hai madam
vein is something which is better seen than felt unless it is blocked and filled with blood in that case it would be painful.
then there is no single vein that runs from the upper rib cage to right side of torso.
since the doctor who has seen u feels there is nothing significant.
I too feel u could let go of it and u will be just fine.
take care
