Causes Of Sudden Swelling Of The Feet?
Doctor’s night.rnI want to ask why my father’s leg suddenly swells for no reason..rnEven though it was okay before
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Before continuing, we would like to convey that the description of a bulge for some people means swelling, and for some it can mean a lump.
So since we don't know which one you mean, we will try to describe both. Starting from swelling, swelling in the legs, one or both can be caused by:
Allergy. Allergies trigger the release of certain substances in the body, these substances 'dilate' blood vessels and cause fluid buildup in various places in the body, one of which is the legs, and causes swelling to appear. Allergies can be caused by anything, so if not known beforehand, they can appear without a cause. Kidney disorders. People with a history of kidney disorders, such as kidney failure, can suddenly experience swollen feet because the kidneys are no longer able to remove excess water from the body through urine. Liver disorders. There is a certain substance called albumin which is produced by the liver. This substance serves to regulate the balance of body fluids. Liver disorders can cause low levels of albumin and cause swelling.
If you mean a lump, then chances are:
lipoma. A benign tumor results from the abnormal growth of a fat gland. This condition is not dangerous and is treated with minor surgery. Insect bites/stings. This is possible, especially if the lump is painful or painful, especially when pressed, is red and feels warm. Other skin infections.
So because there are so many possibilities, our advice is to take your father to a general practitioner as soon as possible, so that later your general practitioner will determine whether your father's condition will go away on its own, can be treated by a general practitioner or need a referral to a dermatologist or internal medicine specialist. What is clear, excavation history and a deeper physical examination is needed to determine it.
Meanwhile, keep your father's feet clean, don't take medicine or apply anything on the swollen area as long as it's not through the doctor's advice, reduce activities, don't walk, stand or sit too long. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
