Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Considering the extent of swelling, Yes you should go to hospital/ER without a second thought. He need to have a Doppler scan to rule out blood clot. Least likely it can be a soft tissue edema but ruling out a blood clot is mandatory. I wish him good luck and that he gets well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. Regards
