Anatomy question
« on: April 14, 2007, 06:12:01 AM »
I have a pronounced vein across the medial aspect of my left knee, a vein that is not in evidence on my right knee.  I have been getting random medial pain on my left knee.  Is there any potential connection?

This is a good question for a doctor.. I have very pronounced veins on the back of my right knee... my first knee to go bad that aren't on the left, but there is no connection between my pain and the veins... I would think that vein pain would be more difuse... as it would likely cause a problem with circulation or something.. but that's just me.
You should get your knee checked out.. veins or no veins

I agree with Linds, sounds like a varicosity (varicose vein). Normally one vein would not cause pain. If you are having knee pain get it checked out by an OS.
