How long can u have a blood clot unknowingly ?

How long can u have a blood clot and not know it I have a spot on my leg that had been swollen for over a year now. It began to swell during pregnancy . It causes me discomfort at times and my whole leg is sometimes achy. The swelling has no fever associated with it. I don t know if a blood clot can stay in one place like that for a long time or if it is most likey something else. It is slight swelling on my lower left leg.

Your history is confusing,at one point you told about a spot and second time you mentioned a clot.I presumed that it is a clot.
Then you might have thrombo phlebitis.where there may be swelling of leg is there.
During pregnancy swelling in the leg increase due to increase pressure in the abdomen.
Take treatment for thrombo phlebitis.
Ok and bye.
