Thanks for writing to us.
The increase in the swelling on your leg could be due to an inflammation in the area. Coagulation profile and other systemic diseases also need to be ruled out after proper investigations. Bony injury needs to be ruled out after an X-ray.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
