It all depends..: It all depends on what other symptoms you may have: Are you short of breath? Palpitations? Fever? Recent surgery or injury? Prolonged immobilization? Do you suffer of any coagulation disease or cancer? Answer to these questions are needed in order to give you a good impression of what is the possibility this is a blood clot. If you are presenting significant symptoms go to the ED for evaluation.
