hello in the lower part of my hand (below the thum above the wrist..the fleshy part) I have a vein or an artery that pulsates and I can see my pulse in it.. It does not hurt but tingles a little sometimes and I can feel the blood flow through.. I have had it for about 4 years and it is noticible especially after I work out.... Should I be worried. Thanks for any input..
Thank you very much doctor.. one quick follow question if I may and I will not bother you again.. The artery is not really blue it almost looks white it is protruding from the hand but just a little and when ever my heart beats it pulsates.. I am just worried with an artery being so close to the surface maybe it will get cut.. i will be sure to show it to my doctor but It sounds like I have no reason to be very worried is this true.. (i understand you can not see the hand so it is just a guess) thanks again!
