A blood clot in the leg can be extremely dangerous. Anyone who is concerned that they may have a blood clot should see a medical professional right away; an ultrasound can often confirm the cause of the symptoms.
Throbbing or cramp-like pain in one leg is one of the most common symptoms of a blood clot. When it forms, most people feel pain in the affected area.

At this point, a doctor may diagnose an individual with deep vein thrombosis or DVT.
