Hello Yanti, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Before I introduce, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Swelling or dilation of veins that cause excessive buildup of blood can also be called varicose veins. Usually veins will have dark purple or blue ponds, and appear swollen or bulging.
This situation can occur in all veins in the body, but usually most often occurs in the legs, especially in the calf because when we walk or stand there is a great pressure.
Some risk factors for varicose veins are:
Women are more often than men. Age of Obesity Often stands for long periods of time. Complications of several operative actions (including cesarean) Because you are a woman with a new history of Caesarean, varicose veins can occur in you. Caesar action increases the risk of blood clots that can clog other blood vessels, especially in the legs / feet. This condition can be asymptomatic and asymptomatic depending on the severity and location of the blockage. Symptoms that are felt in leg varicose veins can be painful legs, redness, warmth. As long as there are no complaints, that means you don't need to worry.
Another possibility that may occur to you with complaints of a lump in the foot is a soft tissue tumor, a lump due to the accumulation of gout, or nothing. Therefore I suggest you to check with the nearest doctor to confirm the diagnosis and to get the right therapy.
My advice for you right now is:
Limit activities first and multiply rest. Don't worry too much about your complaints, as long as it's not too annoying. Evaluate the complaint. You better see a doctor directly for an examination. Take care of your diet and life. So the answers I give hopefully can give you an idea.
