Customer:

no meds. havent seen a Dr. yet. No fever. My son said he had same thing for a few days but went away.

Dr.Saurabh Joshi :

Did you have a fall / get hurt ?

Dr.Saurabh Joshi :

Such a pain and swelling of the calf should not be ignored .. this can be from a venous thrombosis causing pooling of blood in your legs and thus the pain and swelling

You need to see a doctor and have an Ultrasound examination of your leg veins done to look for a venous thrombosis.

Other possible causes can be from a Cellulitis that is an infection of the soft tissues of your calf.

This should be examined by a doctor to differentiate between these so that you can be treated accordingly.
