What is Edema & Swelling?
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.
What Causes Edema & Swelling?
Edema and swelling can be caused by a variety of reasons, including an underlying medical condition or venous disease. Most commonly, edema occurs in conjunction with other symptoms of varicose veins. These malfunctioning veins do not let the blood in the body flow correctly, which causes the blood to overfill the veins and give them a bulging blue or red appearance. In addition to their unwanted appearance, varicose veins can also cause a variety of complications including swelling and edema, opens sores and ulcers, and a heavy feeling in the legs.
How Much Does Treatment for Edema & Swelling Cost?
The cost of your treatment for edema and swelling will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our doctors.
