Hi Amber,

Welcome to HCM.
You should consult a physician to check out if there is any underlying cause for distended veins on the chest and shoulders. Normally veins on the chest and shoulder are not prominent. Some heart problems and liver problems may cause prominence of veins. If these can be excluded then these veins can be ignored and nothing much could be done about them except putting on a little bit of fat.
Wish you all the best.
