An old clot does not make sense.

If it were an old bleed it would be essentially a scar right now.

Your PCP needs to call the radiologist and go over this report, in order to tell you if it is safe to wait.

Your question was delayed because it was not taken in another category.

You can always find me in medical by request. I am here daily.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
