I have an itchy palm with what looks like a slightly bulging vein in the center of the palm. Its not horribly painful, but odd and it came on suddenly.

I’m sorry but my phone will not allow me to do so, but there is a slightly bulging vein in the center of my hand . It has gone down and no longer itches but curious to know if it’s something to be concerned about?

Brief Answer:
Seems to be nothing serious

Detailed Answer:
I don't think it is anything serious.
It could be due to excessive work with the hand or due to some nonspecific inflammation.
Nothing needs to be done.
For itching you can take antihistaminic like tablet Cetrizine 10 mg.
