Patients with cancer are at risk for developing blood clots. This condition is called deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in a large vein. These clots usually develop in the lower leg, thigh or pelvis. Occasionally, portions of the blood clot can break off and migrate through the circulatory system to the lungs, a condition called pulmonary embolism, or PE. PE may be life threatening.
