In brief: Low, but not zero

Anyone can develop a DVT with the right risk factors (immobility, trauma, hypercoagulability, etc), but in general, knowing nothing else about you, your risk is very low.

In brief: Yes

But if you suspect DVT you should definitely be seen and examined and tested for hypercoagulability abnormalities.

In brief: Low

The true incidence of deep vein thrombosis is not entirely known as many studies have not been accurate nor conclusive to date.
However, overall it is thought approximately 80 cases of deep vein thrombosis occur per 100, 000 persons occur annually.
