Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) and Cancer Video
Blood clots are a common problem for people living with cancer.
About 1 in 200 cancer patients develop a blood clot, though the risk of getting a blood clot is not the same in all people with cancer.
The symptoms of blood clots can sometimes be subtle and can be confused with other conditions that cause similar symptoms.
This patient video produced by Mike Evan’s Lab and authored by Thrombosis Canada members, Agnes Lee and Marc Carrier, discusses the signs and symptoms of blood clots in cancer patients
and the available treatment options.
