Clot is caused by poor blood flow (stasis) damage to the vein lining (trauma) and/or an abnormal ability to make clot which can result from a clotting factor problem (hereditary). Muscle strain can cause clot, typically in arm veins in athletes/weight-lifters. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Some have a genetic lack of certain factors which make them bleed, or others more susceptible to forming blood clots. ...Read more
