World Thrombosis (Blood Clot) Day is Friday, October 13th!
Thrombosis is the medical term for the development of a blood clot. A blood clot that forms in the leg is called a Deep Vein Thrombosis, or DVT. Often times DVTs occur in the lower leg or groin.
This blood clot can break off and travel to your lungs, known as a Pulmonary Embolism (PE), and can be fatal. Knowing the signs and symptoms can help save lives! Visit worldthrombosisday.org for more information!
