Dear,

Thanks for staying online.

Such swelling in foot instep of only one side, can be related with- Venous insufficiency which is a condition where the valves in the leg veins are unable to pump blood to the heart which causes blood to pool below the defective valves.

It could also be related with lymphatic obstruction which is blockage of the lymph vessels that drain fluid from body tissues and facilitate immune system cell movement through the body.

Now if it would have been any heart ,liver or renal problem leading to swelling ,it will most likely lead to swelling in both foot. So, this could not be related- heart/ kidney/ liver disease.

A thorough clinical examination and tests would be done for precise diagnosis.

Please start with your primary doctor and get it managed.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
