What will treating DVT, a blood clot deep in a vein, do for you?
It will prevent the clot from growing.
It'll keep the clot from breaking off and traveling to your lung or another organ.
You'll avoid long-lasting complications, such as leg pain and swelling.
Treatment prevents future blood clots, too.
Often, medication and taking care of yourself will do the trick. But you may need surgery. Talk to your doctor about which medical treatment options are right for you.
