Thanks for writing to us.
Swelling of one leg can be due to local causes like filariasis, deep vein thrombosis, cellulitis or systemic causes like kidney or heart problem. Proper examination and investigations are needed under the guidance of a competent physician to find out the cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
