what does it mean when veins stick out on my hands? I do have various veins in my left leg and have had an operation in 1993 and they have come back. I a very slim, skinny and petite. I don t drink much water as I don t enjoy drinking water. I have lots of tea. I had stopped drinking coffer for over 5 years. I drink a glass of red with dinner but not every night. I have never smoked. Do any of these things help you answer my question?

Radiologist, Interventional 's  Response

Prominent veins can be from a High Blood pressure, or a Venous Obstruction in the large veins of the arm / shoulder.

You need a Doppler Ultrasound to look for this possible obstruction.
