      I'm sorry you're worried about this. It seems our minds hear the word cancer and then see if they can't scare us again... with just about anything. I don't think that raised and hard veins is a symptom of anything other than good blood flow.... BUT I have no knowledge whatsoever on the subject of cancer.... except that gleaned when being treated for my own. PLEASE call your oncologist and chat with his nurse regarding any fears you have. Ask her and I'm sure she can ease your fears. We all experience fear fighting this desease. I turned my fears over to God and He's handled them with ease. Don't sit and ponder and fret... if it's simple... we can often explain it here on whatnext, but a question like this. Call your Doctor's office and ask... THEN trust their answer. (((Hugs)))

      Probably not. But it could be a symptom of anything from spider veins, hepatitis, cirrhosis, high blood pressure, heart attack, or a whole bunch of other causes, some minor, some serious. In any case it needs to be addressed with your primary care physician or heart specialist, if you already have one.
