DVT Dangers: Pulmonary Embolism
Many DVTs are not detected by patients or their doctors; about half have no warning signs. Symptoms, when present, may include one or more of the following:
Edema in the affected leg (most specific symptom), with possible skin blanching
Leg tenderness, sometimes with a palpable bump or mass
Leg pain
Leg warmth and/or leg skin redness over the DVT
Lung symptoms of pulmonary edema (PE), a complication of a DVT
A positive Homan’s sign (calf pain when foot is flexed upwards)
