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. If you have a clot (termed deep venous thrombosis) , your doctor will place youon an anticoagulant to prevent pulmonary embolisms.

Swelling: The most common symptom is swelling of one leg more than the other. Also, the leg can be red and very painful to touch. Sudden onset of shortness of breath can be an indication that the clot has broken free and entered into the lungs.

How deadly are blood clots in your leg?

In your leg: The clot is not deadly if it remains in your leg. The problem comes when part of it breaks off and travels up the superior vena cava into the right side of the heart and it is then squirted out into the pulmonary veins where it gets stuck. That is a pulmonary embolus. The PE is dangerous and can be life threatening
