In brief: Edema

Elimination of leg edema depends completely on the primary cause of the edema.
Once the true cause is determined by your physician then proper treatment can be instituted, and hopefully the edema will clear.

In brief: Depends on the cause

Some causes of swelling can include systemic problems such as hypertension, and problems with the kidneys and localized issues such as arthritis, infection, lymphatic obstruction, blood clots, varicose veins, trauma (fracture, sprain, tendonitis) and side effects to medication.
Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
