Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your message.

Signs of a blood clot are: swelling in the leg (or other area depending on where the clot is), a leg that is painful and warm. Doctors use anticoagulants or blood thinners to treat blood clots. These medications slow the time it takes for blood to clot. They also prevent clots from growing.
A blood clot in the leg is serious and requires medical attention right away.
