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

Discuss this with your doc or see a urologist. ...Read more

Way same people have blood clot extend from leg to pelvis?

Anatomy: Veins drain blood from periphery to the heart. Veins in the leg go up to the pelvis and then to the heart. If a clot forms in the vein in the leg, it can grow and reach the pelvis. More seriously, it can break and embolize the lung, resulting in cough, bloody sputum, pain and some times sudden death.

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
