    Deep vein thrombosis (sounds like throm-bow-sis), is a blood clot that forms inside one of the larger veins of the body. You may also hear it called DVT. This type of blood clot usually occurs in the calf, thigh, or pelvis. The blood clot can block part or all of the blood flow. The area becomes inflamed, causing pain, swelling, and feels warm to the touch. (English) Colour
