That's pretty purple....

And given that your workup was unremarkable I agree completely:

Raynauld's syndrome.

here is an excellent article from a highly respected source that you might find helpful:

As you can see there are things you can do and treatments available if necessary.

Does this make sense to you?

Ok thanks so much so it's nothing serious causing them as I have had all those tests ?as I am worried , Also another quick question my left breast has more prominent veins than the right one is this normal ?
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 1 year ago.

That is correct: Nothing serious.

The vein difference from one breast to the other is not unusual. If you are worried just mention it to your doctor during your next exam and mammogram, but I bet it will be OK.

See. A bonus answer on this thread ;)

Ok thanks , im only 24 so I don't think I can get a mammogram do you think the veins are anything serious ?
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 1 year ago.

Without examining you there is no way to know for sure but....given what you have posted.....I think they are nothing to worry about.

I had an examination at breast clinic about 8 months ago and it was fine Im just worried is it a normal variation to have more veins prominent ? Or does it mean cancer or a tumour ? Could a tumour in my breast that's spread cause purple nails ?
