Brief Answer: Negligible possibility Detailed Answer: Hi First of all the swollen vein that you see is a vein outside the skull. It may not be a clot even in the rarest instances. Even if it is a clot it would not travel distal it travels down towards the heart and not brain. During its journey these are lysed by the body's natural clot breaking system. So I think it time to stop worrying and move ahead.
