Odds of pulmonary embolus if ultrasound shows clot in leg or pelvis?

Odds of pulmonary embolus if ultrasound shows clot in leg or pelvis?

High: If untreated, thrombosis in the veins of the legs or pelvis has a very high risk of embolizing to the lungs almost certainly > 90%. If the clot is confined to the small veins of the calf below the knee, these may resolve on their own without specific treatment. ...Read more

Had 2 ultrasounds; left leg (hip to knee) to rule out DVT. Test normal. Now i'm having sharp pain/burning in upper and middle back can it be a clot?

Had 2 ultrasounds; left leg (hip to knee) to rule out DVT. Test normal. Now i'm having sharp pain/burning in upper and middle back can it be a clot?

DVT: Its good news that the ultrasounds were negative for deep vein thrombosis. More typically what we worry about is bits of clot breaking off and traveling to and lodging in the lung (pulmonary embolism). The presentation can vary...but this is mostly experienced as rapid onset of shortness of breath and chest pain. Pain in the back is not a typical presentation for a clot. ...Read more

Constant Calf and behind knee pain for over 2 weeks, can I have a clot below knee? Ultrasound done from popliteal to groin and it was negative.

Constant Calf and behind knee pain for over 2 weeks, can I have a clot below knee? Ultrasound done from popliteal to groin and it was negative.

Repeat evaluation.: A Bakers cyst which is an enclosed collection of fluid contiguous to the meniscus can rupture because the fluid can rupture the joint capsule and has a different level of acidity a burning sensation can occur in the calf muscle.DVT is still possible.A d-dimer blood test can asess the risk or tendency of coagubility.An ultrasound could detect the cyst.The most serious possibility is still the DVT. ...Read more

Pain bottom of foot. Calf and thigh cramping/knotting that wont go away. Could this be blood clot? I had a neg ultrasound knee to groin.

Pain bottom of foot. Calf and thigh cramping/knotting that wont go away. Could this be blood clot? I had a neg ultrasound knee to groin.

DVT: Hi, if your ultrasound is negative then it's very unlikely to have blood clot in leg, most likely you have some sort of muscle tiredness and cramping due to overuse, trauma due to exercise, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance but most likely reason would be overuse of the muscles in leg. ...Read more

Pins and needles in calf, spasm, pain in thigh, swollen groin and hip and lower back pain. Had leg sonogram last month and no clot. What could it be?

Pins and needles in calf, spasm, pain in thigh, swollen groin and hip and lower back pain. Had leg sonogram last month and no clot. What could it be?

Possibly venous: You may have venous insufficiency, or venous reflux, of the leg veins or pelvic veins. Ask for an ultrasound of your leg veins to check for it - it is different than looking for a clot - make sure you are sitting or standing during the scan. You would need an mrv to look for dilated pelvic veins. ...Read more

Localized deep pressure feeling in inner thigh near groin for months. Ultra sound clear for blood clots. Could it be nerve compression?

Since its not resolving i would recommend an evaluation by a specialist like a physiatrist or physical medicine ; rehabilitation doctor who has specialized training in musculoskeletal and spine injuries. ...Read more

Can a normal ultrasound of legs show blood cloth?What are the symptoms apart from pain.Dont have sweling.Got hit in leg now Im afraid it caused b.clot

Can a normal ultrasound of legs show blood cloth?What are the symptoms apart from pain.Dont have sweling.Got hit in leg now Im afraid it caused b.clot

Back of calf: The only place you can get a deep vein clot is in the back of the calf. If you got hit in the shin there is no way for that to cause a blood clot. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) causes swelling and pain. Risk factors are family history of DVT or clots or clotting disorder, use of hormones (birth control), smoking, recent prolonged immobility (on airplane for example), surgery or cancer. ...Read more

Ultrasound shows I have a cyst right ovary, I have leg pain from my right hand side of my hip to my leg.. What us casing this aching dull pain?

Ultrasound shows I have a cyst right ovary, I have leg pain from my right hand side of my hip to my leg.. What us casing this aching dull pain?

Prob not the cyst: Unless the cyst is very big (more than 5 - 10 cm), it is unlikely to be related to the pain. Need more information, so please see your doctor, including follow up for the right ovary if necessary. The symptoms could relate to arthritis in the lumbar spine, or be related to sciatica (neural foraminal stenosis). Could be pulled muscle. Consider lumbar spine MRI if no other cause is found. ...Read more

Felling dull pain in right hand testicle/lower back/leg. Had all tests- testy, kidney ultrasounds/mri of pelvis/urine & blood clear. What could it be?

Urine culture?: You did not say if you had a urine culture done. Sometimes this kind of pain can be due to an infection that may not show up with routine urine cultures. An example is nongonoccocal urethritis or prostatiis. Some docs might try a course of antibiotics and see if that helps the symptoms, since cultures can be expensive. Discuss this with your doc or see a urologist. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
