There are no signs or symptoms of the mutation itself. Signs and symptoms of a clot are usually swelling, pain, red spots, and heat of where a blood clot may be forming. If you have these signs, call or go to a doctor asap. The doctor will usually test you at that time.

You may elect to have a test done if a family member has tested positive for factor 5 or if you suspect you may have it.

Most people do not know they have Factor V Leiden. There are people that know one of their parents had blood clots so most people get diagnosed in adulthood they do not recommend children being tested due to the fact that blood clots are rare and especially in children. If you are an adult you get a blood clot and you know your family has a history of blood clots they will run the test to see if you have the gene mutation called Factor V Leiden

There are no signs or symptoms if you have Factor V Leiden. It is determined by a blood test. Not just any regular blood test, it has to be requested and sent to a special testing lab.
