Good Day
Since when is the swelling. Is it increasing. Does he have any pain. It can be due to Filaria infection also. He will need a Peripheral blood smear examination if that is not already done. Does he have high blood ESR level. You may do a Doppler to rule out Varicose veins on his legs which can also cause the swelling.
