I have green veins in my legs, hands, chest, hips and a bit in my lower abdomen. I'm only 16 years of age. Is this normal or not?

The appearance of your veins may be normal for you. You don't mention any symptoms associated with the veins. I'd suggest you see your primary care physician and review this with them.

Usually, these veins are normal in young people, especially if they are in multiple places and have thin and fair skin. At 16, the cause of these veins are genetic and most likely will improve with age.
