What is DVT?

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when an abnormal blood clot forms in a large vein. These clots usually develop in the lower leg, thigh, or pelvis, but can also occur in other large veins in the body.

If you develop DVT and it is diagnosed correctly and quickly, it can be treated. However, many people do not know if they are at risk, don’t know the symptoms, and delay seeing a healthcare professional if they do have symptoms.
