Blood clots can form in veins when you are inactive. For example, clots can form if you are paralyzed or bedridden or must sit while on a long flight or car trip. Even surgery or an injury which damage your blood vessels will cause clot to form. More importantly, cancer can also cause DVT. In our modern community, clots can be formed much easily. Blood clots always form in the calf and thigh veins. They rarely form in the arms. We usually focus on blood clots in the deep veins of legs, which is quite dangerous. Clots in lung are also common nowadays.   Related FAQs: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1510 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1439 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1652
