Ihave got compexl mass on my right ovarie also got DVT in my left leg does this mean the cacer has spread to my pelvis?
An ovarian mass and a DVT in the other lower extremity is worrisome, but it is not a definitive sign of metastasis. You are right to be concerned, since a pelvic mass compressing the iliac veins could lead to a dvt. Your course of action should include a visit to your oncologist, so you can be evaluated and properly treated. A DVT is very serious - as is cancer.
Hang in there, and good luck. ...Read more
I had my wisdom tooth removed yesterday day local anaesthetic. I now have pelvic pain on both sides? I couldn't move or drink much, could it be dvt.
DVT: I do not think there is a correlation in your case between the removal and the pelvic pain;dvt no unless you have had it before and at your age I would doubt it. Please see your md to determine the cause of the pain even if it appears better today. ...Read more
Can pelvic inflammatory disease cause leg pain down one or both legs? DVT. Ultrasound was negative but I was on flagyl for vaginitis.
PID to cause pain down both legs is very very unlikely as there is nowhere PID can affect the nerves in the spine that are usually responsible for pain in both legs which originates in Lumbar Spine and that is too far fetched and in my view impossible
No PID can not cause leg pain down one or two legs. You need to get MRI of LS Spine to find the cause ...Read more
Current DVT on warfarin, bv, lgil, pcos managed by metformin and diet/exercise. Stopped Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) after dvt, pelvic pain. Any relationship between all these?
Insulin resistance.: The Insulin resistance syndrome (ir) is the underlying cause of pcos. This is due to down-regulation of sex hormone binding globulin. Ir also causes up-regulation of several clotting factors, like fibrinogen and pai-1, the inhibitor of tpa (alteplase). Stay on the metformin, get regular exercise and follow a low glycemic index diet. ...Read more
I have a long medical history starting with leukemia like symptoms and most recently DVT and pe's no answers in sight. Help! ?
What symptoms?: Unexplained clotting in a 21 year old is concerning. I would evaluate a long list of things, which can cause clotting. Would also consider testing for other unusual causes for clotting (these are not typically screened with dvt/pe). Not sure how "leukemia symptoms" fit in here. What symptoms do you have? You definitely would benefit from seeing a hematologist, if you have not already. ...Read more
Swelling and? Pain: A DVT in the calf presents with unilateral fullness or swelling, with some mild discomfort or pain. However, DVT can be silent, with very vague and mild discomfort. DVT in pelvic veins may have almost no symptoms. A high index of suspicion in patients at risk is necessary. Venous doppler studies, a painless sound wave test, can clear or verify the diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read more

Pain and swelling: The most common symptom of DVT is pain and the most common physical finding is swelling. However, not everyone has these.

The bottom line is, if DVT is considered, then proper testing is required. ...Read more
Can vary: Commonly, deep vein thromboses cause pain and swelling but sometimes they will only cause one or the other. Occasionally, they cause no symptoms. If a blood clot is small and in what we call calf veins, you might only get pain without swelling. If the clot is only blocking part of the vein, but not all of it, you also might get no swelling. ...Read more
What are the chances of a DVT clot bursting and killing you? Are there any symptoms before it ruptures and can it be prevented from rupturing?
There is risk: Deep vein thrombosis is a blood clot adhering to the wall of a vein, typically in the leg, but can happen anywhere in the body. Once the clot is there the primary concern is that it can break free from the vascular wall (embolism) and move downstream and get lodged in the lung where it will damage the lung and possibly kill you if not treated right away. Prescribed blood thinners can prevent it. ...Read more
What would cause sharp pain behind the knee that occurs shortly before a sharp pain in the back of the head? No other symptoms of dvt: just pain!
I have some DTV like symptoms in right calf, currently on dianette contraception & had a long flight 3 days ago, can it be anything apart from DVT?
Get to an ER: Leg discomfort with risk factors for DVT such as prolonged immobility, prothrombotic medications cannot be ignored and ruling out a DVT in order to prevent a pulmonary embolism is a critical and time sensitive matter. Only after that workup is done and negative should one entertain other diagnoses. ...Read more
