Note: Leg swelling is a difficult symptom to diagnose. If both legs are swollen, it is most likely due to a problem with one’s general health. Bilateral swelling can be caused by certain types of medications or can be a symptom of congestive heart failure, liver disease, kidney problems, or obesity. For these types of problems, you should see your general physician.
It is important not to ignore any kind of leg swelling, especially if it comes on abruptly, as it may be a sign of a serious issue.
As the leading leg swelling clinic in Northern California, South Bay Vascular continues to be on the cutting edge of treatment options and offers treatments that very few other facilities can deliver.
