In brief: Venous insufficiency

If it is the consequence of a prior venous thrombosis it is called a post-phlebitic leg.

In brief: Lymphedema?

If you are a woman between the ages of 35 and 55, have a chronically swollen left leg that isn't painful, have no varicose veins, and your foot and toes are swollen too, you probably have a condition called lymphedema.
Other things can cause one chronically swollen leg, so seeing a doctor about your leg would be a very good idea.
