Knee and calf swollen, bruised

yesterday noticed a little swelling below my brother in laws knee cap, today his whole knee & calf is swollen and very bruised. I asked him if he twisted it, but he s not sure what had happened. He s on the way to the doctor soon, but I was just wondering for working purposes what s going on. I help him and my husband in their family farm. I hope it s nothing serious.

Perhaps he had an accident without noticing. Clean his leg, then put some cold compresses and immobilize it until you see a doctor.

Hope it helped!
