I have a bulging vein in my forehead around my left temple

This answer was rated:

I have a bulging vein in my forehead around my left temple area. I just noticed it this morning. I can feel my pulse when I put my finger on it.
This bulging vein can be due to temporal arteritis and may need immediate attention. Veins can be treated with sclerotherapy (injecting a solution into the veins to cause them to close) or with laser therapy. Though forehead veins are not typically treated. I advice you to go to ER for the examination & tests.
