Deep Vein Thrombosis - Symptoms

Only about half of the people with deep vein thrombosis have symptoms. The symptoms may include:

  • Swelling of the leg
  • Pain or tenderness in the leg, usually in one leg and may be felt only when standing or walking
  • Increased warmth in the area of the leg that is swollen or in pain 
  • Changes in skin colour or redness
It is important to see a doctor right away if you have symptoms of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. Deep vein thrombosis can cause very serious complications if not treated.
