What Are Swollen Legs and Edema?

Edema, more commonly called swelling, is a condition caused by fluid retention around the hands, feet, legs, and ankles. While edema can be caused by medication to regulate blood pressure and inflammation, this fluid retention is also commonly caused by varicose veins or damaged and diseased veins in the legs. If your swollen hands, feet, legs, or ankles are accompanied by numbness and coldness, or open sores and ulcers, we recommend you get a series of diagnostic tests done with our expert specialists as soon as possible.
