Our expert says:
Blood clots and damage to the vein wall, can cause fibrosis and subsequent "collapsed veins". Do not be concerned, as there are a multitude of veins that carry blood from the tissue in your hand to the upper limb and your heart. If there is abnormal swelling, tenderness or redness present, I suggest that you consult your doctor for an examination, as this will be a sign of infection.
