Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
How long is the reddish purple vein or blood vessel?
How is the pain?
Does she have any other symptom?
Is there any feeling of lump or mass?

The size of a quarter and she isnt in pain yes u can see and.feel a lump
Thank you Ashley, for the information.
There can be a few possibilities.
The symptoms of a prominent vein can be due to Mondor's disease or superficial thrombophlebitis of the breast.
The outcome is usually good.
Often it resolves by itself.
If she feels any pain,then she can take anti-inflammatory analgesics.
This usually lasts for 3-4 weeks, but sometimes it can last longer.
However, if there is a feeling of a lump there can be other possibilities like an infection, abscess, growth/tumor etc.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Doctor can take ultrasound examination or mammography, if he thinks necessary for confirmation.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
Please feel free for any follow up query.
Best wishes.
