just a question, I have a circular vein on the right side of my forehead, no color to it. I just notice it sticking out. when standing further away from the mirror it looks like that side of my forehead has a bump or something to that effect. I have had this for over a year. My Doctors NP sent me to get a cat scan to make sure it wasn't a growth of some sort under the skin ( my sinus's where also viewed at that time due to irritation). My question is, is this normal. Nothing abnormal showed on the CAT scan so therefore I shall not worry. BUT I am still curious of the abnormality. It looks like I got bumped on the right side of my forehead and it is never going to subside. YOUR Thoughts?:confused:

  • Thanks I have thought of that among many other things. The weird thing about this is the slight raise on the right side of my forehead that is with the vein. I would say it was double the size of a quarter. Not sure if this make sense but its hard to describe. Oh well, thanks for the feedback.:o
