In brief: Doctor can examine
A leg that has been swollen and reddened for six weeks is not normal and can have a serious problem. There can be infection in the bone, or some sort of bone cancer or muscle tumor. Autoimmune disorders causing arthritis can affect the arms and legs.
Blockages in blood vessels or lymphatic channels can cause swelling and poor circulation in a leg. A doctor can examine such a leg and run tests.
