What test diagnose venouis thrombosis?

What test diagnose venouis thrombosis?

Ultrasound is best: As dr. Hertzman said, ultrasound is best but you might not need one. If your history is suggestive of a deep venous thrombosis (dvt), a blood test called a d-dimer can be very useful. If your d-dimer is normal, an ultrasound is probably not necessary. If your history is suggestive of a DVT and your d-dimer is abnormal, an ultrasound is a must. ...Read more

I have a deep venous thrombosis near my subclavian vein. What risks do I run when I work my arm too hard?

I have a deep venous thrombosis near my subclavian vein. What risks do I run when I work my arm too hard?

Probably not much: The clot inside of your subclavian vein should be quite sticky unless it is very new. The chance of dislodging the clot with exercise is not zero, but is very small. The consequence of working your arm may be more swelling which will improve when you raise your arm above the level of your head. ...Read more

Hepc , cirohsis, report shows portal vein is mildly prominent and measures 12.5cm. No evidence of thrombosis. How bad is it?

Hepc , cirohsis, report shows portal vein is mildly prominent and measures 12.5cm. No evidence of thrombosis. How bad is it?

Well,: It is not the best of signs. You have portal hypertension. I hope you are under the care of a GI doctor even better a liver specialist aka as a hepatologist. Were you examined for signs of portal hypertension in your esophagus? If not, you should. Have you explored the possibility of a liver transplant. This is not my specialty so I am asking only from a theoretical point of view. ...Read more

Is sexual intercourse safe with deep vein thrombosis?

Is sexual intercourse safe with deep vein thrombosis?

Should be: Virtually any activity is safe with a deep vein thrombosis, as long as you are taking proper and adequate anti-coagulation. It generally takes 48 hours to get to that point--sometimes more. Once adequately anticoagulated, if doing something is uncomfortable then you shouldn't do it but, as long as you can do it comfortably, any activity is fine. ...Read more

Large swollen portion on penis told it was broken blood vessel, now there is a clear hard vein area painful to touch. Could it be a penis thrombosis?

Large swollen portion on penis told it was broken blood vessel, now there is a clear hard vein area painful to touch. Could it be a penis thrombosis?

Mondor's Disease: Probable thrombosed dorsal vein of penis or superficial venous thrombophlebitis. Should not be a problem, not like deep vein thrombosis of leg or coronary thrombosis. Commonest causes are masturbation or excessive sex. Penile swelling should settle down in time. This should not be confused with priapism, which is an erection which fails to go away & can be due to internal penile vessel thrombosis. ...Read more

I bumped/cut my shins badly 10 days ago. Now, my right thigh is swollen, hurts in 3"x3" area deep inside. Only hurts when resting. Is it thrombosis?

I bumped/cut my shins badly 10 days ago. Now, my right thigh is swollen, hurts in 3"x3" area deep inside. Only hurts when resting.  Is it thrombosis?

Get vein ultrasound.: Following trauma, it is not unusual to have bleeding below the skin resulting in a hematoma which can cause pain and swelling. You probably have this but with your history of recent brace wearing and some degree of immobility, it would be wise to obtain a venous ultrasound to ensure that you do not have a dvt. ...Read more

Lap score 13 (range 15-85) high wbc, neutrophilia, lymphocytosis, monocytosis, basohilia, thrombosis..Wth? Can i rule out smoking with the low lap score?

Smoking?: If you mean is smoking a likely cause of the blood tests you have sent, it is unlikely. If you have not seen a hematologist yet, you should. The entire blood count would be helpful. Chronic myelogenous leukemia needs to be considered. ...Read more
