I have a suspicion that this is a vericose vein. I have the same thing - first noticed it a few years ago in a tanning booth... you know, the face light has a cover that's a bit reflective. With the heat in the bed, the bump pulsed like crazy! It seems to be worse now - perhaps bigger, or simply just more to the surface. Of course, like every American woman, I'm crazy-stressed and not taking care of myself. But, I'm headed to a dermotologist or medical spa for an evaluation. It's got me a bit worried... sometimes it seems to tingle or itch, and it's certainly noticeable now. Not hard like a Cancer lump might be... but I'm still a bit nervous. It's heartening to hear that others might have a similar thing, so maybe it is normal/treatable/removable. View Thread
