Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.

We are here to help you. I have seen the attached photograph too, but you need to do clinical examination of the swelling to give a perfect comment. I would list down the possibilities;
1. Acute DVT episode.
2. Venous leakage syndrome due to previous DVT episode as a complication of DVT
3. Cellulitis.
I would advise you to see your doctor, if he feels this is DVT on clinical background, he will get a Venous Doppler done. If DVT is found he will start you on Anti coagulants. If this is due to Cellulitis, he will start you on antibiotics.
Share my opinion with your doctor.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
