large vein appeared on right side of face

I have had a large vein become visible on the right side of my face, it's been there for a few months now. I am 38 and I thought it was just ageing (aging). The problem is, it is tender to the touch, I looked inside my mouth to see if there was anything that may cause pain, such as an ulcer, there was nothing. My whole cheek aches at this point, and I have a headache, because I was messing about with it, pressing it etc.. The vein runs down my cheek, then goes into my jawline. Any ideas? Is it serious?

Do you smoke?
Why do you think it's the vein, why not the artery?
Any face/neck swelling?

It does sound serious.
