    Jugular vein??

    I am wondering if this is normal or not. I believe it is the external jugular vein that comes down from near the ear to the clavicle bone area. About 2-3 inches above the clavicle, I notice a bump in the vein (left side)when I feel with my finger. I can also feel the vein along its length above this, but not below. There may be a bit of the same on the right side, but not nearly as noticable. I also notice my temple veins are very prominent on the left side.

    Is this bump normal? I think this may be the location of a valve but not sure of course. The reason I noticed this is because I have bruising and a lump on one of my leg veins, and cord like veins below this.
