My dad has colon cancer, and the tumors have spread to the liver. He recently was hospitalized for pneumonia and for blood clots on his lungs. What causes blood clots during chemo, and why did they travel to his lungs?
Blood clots can occur in the body for a variety of reasons, including surgical manipulations and prolonged periods of immobility (bed rest or long trips in cars, planes or trains). There are also underlying genetic conditions that can increase the likelihood of blood clot formation.
Cancer in general, through release of various factors, can induce clot formation and in itself is another risk factor for getting clots. The blood clots can arise in any blood vessel but commonly occur in the deep veins in the legs. At times, a clot can be dislodged from its place of origin and can travel through blood vessels to the lungs, which is what happened with your father.
