A blood clot is a mass of blood that has changed from a liquid state to a gelatinous clot. These clots are often benign because they protect the body from bleeding in the event of an injury. But these clots can form in your deep veins and put your life on the line.
The most dangerous type of clot is deep venous thrombosis (DVT) because it blocks the movement of blood through the blood vessels. This can have serious consequences if the clot breaks off where it started and reaches the heart or lungs.
At Bright Side, we’ve compiled a list of the most important signs to look for to identify any potential symptoms of DVT as soon as possible.
