Complexities of wound healing and tissue regeneration on skin.
Swelling is a common condition that affects many people at some point in their lives. It can occur for a variety of reasons, ranging from minor injuries to serious medical conditions. While swelling is not always a cause for concern, it is important to understand its causes, symptoms, and treatment options. Swelling, also known as edema, is the result of fluid accumulation in the tissues of the body. This can occur anywhere in the body, including the hands, feet, legs, and face. Swelling can be localized, affecting only one part of the body, or it can be generalized, affecting the entire body. There are many different factors that can cause swelling. Injuries, such as sprains and fractures, can cause swelling as the body's natural response to inflammation. In addition, certain medical conditions, such as heart disease, kidney disease, and liver disease, can also cause swelling as a result of fluid retention.Author(s): David Eric*
