Hello there. I can understand your concern. you haven't provided any more details which makes it difficult to answer for us. the swelling could be due to anything like liver issues, kidney issues, heart issues. is he hypertensive? is he diabetic? anything you could have added in the history would have made it easy for us to diagnose. anyways, kindly consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. you will require a battery of tests also. best regards,
