It’s not surprising that many women exhibit visible veins in the breast. Breast veins often become more prominent during pregnancy or puberty as a result of the natural enlargement of the breasts; veins get larger as tissue grows. Pregnancy can also make existing breast veins more prominent. Oral contraceptive use or breast augmentation can also cause veins on the breast to enlarge. Most breast veins fade following pregnancy or when swelling from breast augmentation subsides. Blue breast veins are only a cosmetic problem, and have no health consequences. However, breast veins can exhibit the same problems seen in other areas of the body, and that includes varicose veins, reticular veins and spider veins, all of which can appear on one or both breasts.
