My daughter is almost 3 years old and I've noticed that she has what seems to be a large vein visible on the right side of her neck. She has always been in excellent health but now i'm very concerned. Is this something I need to seek medical attention for ASAP?
Without seeing your daughter, I cannot say whether this requires urgent medical attention. Certainly, if you are concerned about it as being large, she should be evaluated. However, different people's interpretation of "large" varies. Thus, what appears to be enlarged to you may actually be normal. If she is well, it certainly does not sound emergent.
