Hi there!

Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the swelling in your case. Out of the multiple possible causes, one that would need immediate attention is DVT. Other possible causes include infections/ inflammations, allergies, growths, masses etc. At this stage it would be best to visit the ER to evaluate for a DVT. Once this has been ruled out you might consider an evaluation by your doctor to look for other possible causes. Meanwhile could also try elevating the limb, ice-packs and some NSAIDS to help subside the swelling (after ruling out a DVT).
Hope this helps.

Take care!
