Thanks for the picture.

The veins do not point to cancer.

For the bloating, the following would help;

1) Oral probiotics

2) Pepto Bismol.

Both of these are without a prescription.

I hope your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need more information.
Thanks for using JustAnswer.

What is the vein then and the reason behind it how long will it last
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 20 days ago.

Many men have prominent veins and this is just normal.

It is not a disease so it may persist or resolve spontaneously.
