Brief Answer:
Could be venous blockade.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Any other problems except the visible veins?
Visible dilated veins are usually a sign of some deeper venous blockade but if you do not have any limb or abdominal swelling then no need to worry.
You could get a Surgical consultation and probably get an Ultrasound abdomen to visualize the veins and liver. If all is ok then nothing to be done.
You can let me know the report and I can advice you further if anything needs to be done.
Take care.
