How Serious is a Blood Clot in the Brain?

Home Care in Fairbanks AK: Senator John McCain’s recent blood clot removal and diagnosis of brain cancer has many people wondering about blood clots in the brain and how serious they may be. While Senator McCain’s blood clot was a sign of a much more serious problem, sometimes blood clots are easy to treat and the person is restored to health. Since blood clots are common in people over the age of 50, family caregivers and home care providers should be on the lookout for symptoms.
