What Are Phleboliths?

Phleboliths are small blood clots in a vein that harden over time due to calcification. They’re often found in the lower part of your pelvis and usually don’t cause any symptoms or other health problems.

Phleboliths, also called vein stones, tend to be oval-shaped and less than 5 millimeters in diameter. They’re also relatively common, especially in people over 40.
