In brief: Fluid

The easiest way to describe swelling would be an excessive amount of fluid buildup in the body.
Many things can cause swelling such as problems with veins and lymphatics of the body, clots, high blood pressure, heart failure, fractures and sprains. A visit to your doctor can help find the cause.
