Surgeon-phlebologist-lymphologist, surgeon of the first category
Good afternoon! In the hot season (summer), my legs swell just in the ankle. This year the left leg is swollen. Swelling for a night falls slightly. The lateral ossicles on legs or foots in general are not visible, besides, from an external party or side of a leg or foot after a recession of an edema in the field of a bone on an ankle there is a greater or big tumor, reminds on sensations the vessel with a liquid. When you touch, you feel pain. In the foot area, sensations of burning and tingling. In winter, there are no such problems. The work is mostly sedentary. But 1 hour is enough for the leg to swell easily and only in this place. Tell me, please, what can it be, and to which doctor should I go? Thank you for your participation and help.
