Thanks for your question.
Is it red, warm and tender to touch?
Since how long have you been having this?
Thanks for your reply.
There can be few possible causes.These would include deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins, cellulitis which is infection of the superficial tissues of the leg and a ruptured baker"s cyst.
If the leg is not warm or red , infection is less likely.Other causes would need to be ruled out by doctor's examination and color doppler examination of leg if needed.
Please reply for any clarification.
Thanks for replying.
Let me know how the visit goes.
I will await your reply.
Great to know that it is a simple thing and nothing serious.
