As far as i know, i've had this problem for a while and its been no problem, but today, behind my knee i suddenly developed a dull ache. When i looked i noticed that the vein was sticking out like usual, but it now seems to also stick out along the length of my lower leg. The vein itself doesnt seem to hurt, and touching it isnt a problem, but it certainly looks wierd. The vein is about 4mm thick which seems pretty big but like i said-its been sticking out for a while. Is this normal?
