Customer: replied 4 years ago.
It is in the center of the palm.
Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 4 years ago.
Thank you for the information,

It is uncommon to have an engorged vein in the palm of the hand.

It can be a tendon, or a thickened vein from thrombosis or inflammation.

You need to get it examined by doctor.

Treatment will depend on finding the exact nature of the problem.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
What is Thrombosis and what treatment is available for either a Tthrombosis,Engorged Vein or Swollen Tendon.
Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 4 years ago.
Thrombosis is clot formation in the vein.

If it is small it will usually not need any treatment & get absorbed.

The swollen tendon can need treatment with antiinflammatory analgesics, steroids etc.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
This pain is sometimes feels like neddles point pokes or electric shock waves going through it.
Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 4 years ago.
This can be due to an inflammation of the area.

It can also be due to irritation of nerve.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
if it is a nerve, is it possible to correct this by surgery or any other procedures.
Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 4 years ago.
If there is any factor like entrapment of the nerve, then it can be relieved by releasing it by surgery.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
