Pain and swelling: Commonly, blood clots cause pain and swelling but sometimes they will only cause one or the other. Occasionally, they cause no symptoms. Ultrasound is the only way to know for sure.

Swelling and pain: Symptoms are swelling and pain of the calf, foot, ankles, or any combination. These clots form in the veins and can be diagnosed by a simple ultrasound (noninvasive) testing.
