60. Male...less that an inch

less than an inch long? how far is it bulging out?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It's about 2 inches long you can't see unless you touch it.

I see.

you can see your doctor and get an ultrasound of that vein.

it is normal to be able to feel a vein.

veins are normally larger and softer than arteries in your neck.

it doesn't sound dangerous.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
