That is not the typical place to get pain from a blood clot. Does he have any risk factors for a blood clot? Has he been immobile at all-long car ride, plane trip, illness, etc.? If there are risk factors, an ultrasound of his leg could rule out the blood clot. If the discomfort continues, he should see his doctor for evaluation. Good luck!
