It could be. But it could also be due to other things too. Best to get your doc to check it out. There are special medical elastic stockings which can be worn to help leg swelling. Best to get a professional opinion though.

It could be soooo many things including artery/blood vessel issues, gout, infection, etc. You should see the doctor.
