What are blood clots?
Blood clots are gel-like clusters of blood that occur as blood shifts from liquid to partially solid in your arteries and veins. Clotting is a natural body process that prevents your body from bleeding excessively when you are injured. Blood clots are divided into two varieties.
Clots that stay put and don’t move (thrombosis) and those that break away from where they formed and travel to different parts of your body (thrombosis) (embolism). A blood clot can be fatal depending on what it blocks or where it moves.
Several circumstances in life raise your risk of blood clots. These are some of them:
- When you’re pregnant
- When you are unable to move
- When you’ve recently undergone significant surgery
- When you’ve been diagnosed with cancer
