My husband has been diagnosed with DVT in his left arm. After sonagram he now has a lg bulge in the armpit area should we be alarmed?

Much better to be safe than have serious complications. A trip to ER may allow for an ultrasound or CT to rule out the above. Good luck and get a consult. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Also upper extremity DVT is not as common as lower extremity DVT and usually is associated with an inciting event such as trauma, tumor, an IV or thoracic outlet syndrome. It would be very unlikely for your symptoms to be due to dvt. See a vein specialist for an exam. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have had two arm dvt's. One from birth control and one unexplained. I've heard these unexplained ones can be from occult cancer? How likely is this?

I urge you to set up an appointment with a hematologist (doctor who specializes in blood problems) and have a full evaluation done. Blood clots can be serious and even life-threatening.

DVT: DVT can re-occur in the presence of predisposing factoors like the PICC line, fractures/ immobilization and hereditary anticoagulant factors deficiency or malgnancy or use of contraceptive with smoking.
