A blood clot in the brain can cause a TIA, or transient ischemic attack, which causes a non-permanent loss of blood supply and oxygen to an area of the brain. Blood clots in the brain also cause stroke. If not corrected quickly, permanent brain damage will result. Clot "busters" are used to break up the clot and restore blood flow. If you suspect a stroke or TIA it is best to get to an ER.
People have a stroke when a blood clot forms in an artery. When the blood clot travels to your brain, that is when you have a stroke.
It is possible.
A circulating blood clot is called an embolism and is extremely dangerous, particularly to the brain and lungs.
A heparin drip is used to prevent the blood from clotting. If there is an existing clot heparin will thin the blood, and prevent the clot from traveling to the lungs or brain.

Well if you mean you are age 18 and have a blood clot, it could mean many things. It all depends on the type of clot you have. I'm two weeks shy of 18 and doctors just found a blood clot in my brian. Because it's in a vein on the outside, I don't even need surgery to treat it, just blood thinners. So ultimately, it's not common at this age, but the type of clot it is will determine the danger level and how it will need to be treated.
