Leg oedema/swelling
There are many causes of swollen legs. Most of these are not serious but a swollen leg does require investigation as some conditions require treatment. The commonest causes of a swollen leg are listed below. One of the first investigations is an ultrasound scan of the leg. If you have a swollen leg, ask your GP or medical specialist if you can have an ultrasound scan of the legs and a referral to Stuart Walker.
Conditions which can cause a swollen leg:
Varicose veins
Damage to the veins deep within the leg (previous DVT)
Heart, kidney or liver failure
Hypoalbinumaemia due to any other cause
