Most  of the time blue chest veins are normal findings and they are very common on the breasts of females.  Occasionally chest veins may be abnormal and a reflection of a vein problem in the neck or chest area.  See a vein specialist for an evaluation.

In patients with thin skin, chest veins can become more apparent. The good news is that they can be treated with foam sclerotherapy with great success.

Yes, it is perfectly normal to find blue chest veins. These veins can occur due to a number of factors, including age, sun exposure, or genetic predisposition. A specialist could determine more by evaluating you in person, as well as provide treatment options if you wished to remove them.

Prominent chest veins can be normal finding in any person. meanwhile most of the women after pregnancy and brest feeding are going to have chest/breast veins.
Foam sclerotherapy is effective option to treat those veins.
