Respected Sir, hi I evaluated your query thoroughly.
Regarding flat blue painless vein there are 2 possibilities :
1.Varicosity of Saphenous tributary
2.Non-specific idiopathic appearance of vein remotely concerned with minute
undetectable perfusion disturbance.
Can undergo Doppler Ultrasound for final diagnosis .
Hope this clears your query.
Thanks for using Health care Magic.
Regards
Take care bye
Wishing you happy healthy life ahead.
