Prominent vein in arm around bicep. Exercising regularly. Why has it not appeared in other arm?

I am 14 years old. I do fitness 3 day in a week. last year I noticed i had a vein on my left arm right around my bicep. I then noticed that i did not have one on my right arm. I thought that it would appear later on. one year later it still hasn t appeared, and I m curious as to why and if I will ever see that vein later on in my life

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Veins are extremely variable in location among individuals / and between the two sides in the same individual. They are the most inconstant of all the structures in human anatomy.
Probably the right one has a different course / may be deep; even absent!
The chances are - you may not see it at all!
No cause for concern.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
