Can flying with a sprained ankle cause a blood clot?

Blood clots

Blood
Are generally caused by inactivity or lack of movement. Swelling could contribute or increase risk. So can obesity, taking oral contraception, smoking and pregnancy. If you get up and walk around, keep the foot in motion this would decrease any risk. One could also wear anti embolism stockings.

I have a bump above my ankle, it's tender.is it a blood clot?

Possible blood clot

Blood_type
The may be several possibilities of causes of this. It could be a ganglionic cyst which are very common. It could be a lipoma which is a benign fatty tumor or other forms of pathology. Obviously it also could be a blood clot, especially if you injured or sprained your ankle. you need to seek medical attention for this concern, including x-rays.

Dr. Matthew Wilkin answered:

Bruising around ankle after acl surgery, is this a blood clot?

Probably not

Ankle
It's probably associated with the knee surgery. Gravity simply allows the blood flow down to the ground and causes the bruising around your ankle. However, if you are having swelling in your calf or thigh with intense pain, you should have a Doppler ultrasound to check it.

Dr. Kim M. Fagan answered:

is the ankle swelling I am experiencing a blood clot or sonething else?

Not likely

Blood_clot
Isolated ankle swelling may be, among other things, a result of gout, infection, arthritis, an osteochondral defect, or an injury. Swelling from a blood clot is more classically noted in the calf. It too may result in swelling of the ankle but is not isolated to the ankle.

Swollen painful ankle on one side. Warm to touch. Could this be a blood clot?

Yes

Platelet
Go to the ER and get tested. There are a lot of other things it could be (gout, sprain, infection), but you certainly need to rule out anything life threatening like a clot.
