What causes visible veins in armpit when diagnosed with first rib osteochondroma?
visit vascular surgeon
Dear XXXX, welcome to HCM and thanks for choosing us.
I share your concerns about your daughter's illness. Thanks for providing details. Yes , you need to be concerned as there are several conditions from simple to serious ones, which can cause this. Dilated veins indicate some slowness in blood flow due to block. Or even increased blood flow may result in to dilatation. Most of the times these are temporary occurrence. It can be due to infections, muscle strain, allergic reaction to some allergen like insect bite or local trauma. If none of the above is there, then there is possibility of a problem related to earlier surgery for osteochondroma.
I would advise you to visit a surgeon preferably vascular surgeon for clinical examination and blood flow study. Based on the findings treatment can be planned.
I hope my reply will help you. Please write to us for more information and follow up queries. I wish good health to your daughter and your family. Kindly rate this reply. Thanks
