Hello,

It could be varicose of vein. It may be related to renal function also. So renal function test should be done. Is it in both the legs or in one leg? Avoid taking excessive salt. Keep watch on swelling.

Repeat test of renal function. Consult renal surgeon and follow his advice on treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
