Thank you for the information,The vein is likely due to superficial thrombophlebitis or inflammation of vein.Prognosis is usually good. In most cases it regresses without much intervention.However, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor..You can take advil or naproxen till then.Please take them after food to avoid gastric irritation.Please keep the breast supported by well fitted brassiere .I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.

How is the bruise now?
Can you send picture?
I have seen the pictures.
In this area, tendon is not present.
It is likely prominent vein.
Prominent vein can appear as tendon.
The vein can course down over ribs.
You may not see the vein normally.
It gets prominent when inflamed.
Inflammation is the likely cause for pain.
I have seen such cases.
There can be a few possibilities.There can be pressure on the vein from contraction & relaxation of pectoral muscles.A direct trauma can cause it.
You can see a picture here where it shows which veins are commonly affected.
Warm, moist compress can be helpful.
You can take pain medicines like motrin or naproxen.
Usually it is self limiting.
But an examination should be taken to exclude any inflammatory condition of breast like an abscess.
