In brief: Painless swelling

Lymphedema of the legs is usually painless.
If you have painful swelling, it is more likely to be something called lipidema. The hallmark of lymphedema of the legs is that the feet and toes are also swollen. If you can't pinch the skin on the top of your 2nd or 3rd toes because of swelling, then it is probably lymphedema. This is not true if you have edema from other causes.
