In brief: Yes

Yes. Patients with malignancies are often prone to clot formation (hypercoaguable).
In addition, in advanced cancers, spread to the lymph nodes of the abdomen can result in pressure on the large abdominal veins with resultant slowing of blood flow which is another setup for clot formation (thrombosis).

In brief: Yes

Most forms of cancer knock the body's clotting system of balance and increase the risk of dvt.
Large blood clots in the iliac (pelvis) and major femoral veins are much more common in people with underlying malignancy.
