Dr. Richard K. Orr answered:

Are women who have had breast cancer more likely to develop deep vein thrombosis?

Maybe

Breast_cancer
Early stage breast cancer is associated with a very minimal risk of DVT although some of the treatments (estrogen blockage) may increase that risk as does smoking. Advanced stages of most cancers are associated with increased DVT.

Dr. David Lemme answered:

What is the best way to fully recover from deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. I used to run marathons, but my breath is just not the same.?

Steadily train.

Heart
A pulmonary embolism is kind of like a heart attack of the lung. A portion of the lung has been damaged and the remaining alveoli and blood circulation have to pick up the slack. As you train, and steadily increase your activity, you will develop greater lung capacity and endurance. Though you may not return to your previous capability, it could be possible with continued effort..

Dr. John Landi answered:

Why are my mother's lower legs completely purple/dark red, hard and painful? a vascular specialist ruled out deep vein thrombosis.

Venous insufficiency

Landherr_post
Chronic venous insufficiency will lead to swollen, discolored legs. These legs can be purple, red, blue or more commonly brown. This is due to malfunctioning of the valves in either the suuperficial saphenous system of veins, the deep system of veins or a combination of both. Lymphedema may also play a role. She may not have DVT but she may have CVI and she should have a reflux sonogram.

Dr. John Landi answered:

What are the causes of deep vein thrombosis?

Multiple.

Open-uri20130930-14973-11474vp
There are many causes for DVT but all causes revolve around 3 factors: stasis of blood, injury to the vessel wall or increased propensity to clot(hypercoagulabe state). Stasis occurs with long trips or immobility due to illness or casts. Injuries to the vein wall can occur with trauma from something within the vein or external to it .Hypercoagulable- increased risk of clotting -genetic/acquired.

Dr. Robert A. Roth answered:

Is deep vein thrombosis deadly?

Possibly

Blood_clots
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot in one or more of the internal veins. Most often in the legs, less often in the arms. If a blood clot breaks loose and flows through the heart and into the lungs it can be fatal. DVT is a common complication of many medical illnesses. If you are ill you should ask your doctor about this as there are effective prevention approaches.

Dr. Barbara Toppin answered:

What is deep vein thrombosis?

A blood clot

Leg
A DVT is a blood clot ( thrombus) which has formed in the deep vein of usually the leg. It may involve the lower, upper or entire leg. Less frequently it involves the upper extremity. The other kind of clotting is superficial phlebitis which occurs in the veins just under the skin. If either is suspected one should seek immediate medical attention.

Deep vein thrombosis causes warmth, pyrexia?

Unusual

Fever
The only time a DVT would cause pyrexia (a fever) would be if there was an infection assciated with it. Although that can happen, it would be exceedingly rare.
