What is Chronic Swelling?
As a normal part of your blood circulation, your vascular system leaks fluid into the surrounding tissues. Your body’s lymphatic system is responsible for collection of this fluid. Edema, or swelling, occurs when an abnormal buildup of fluid occurs in the body. Mild, temporary edema can be caused by many factors, but lasting edema may be a sign of a more serious underlying medical condition.
