What Causes Swollen Hands?

Answer

The cause of swollen hands is edema due to fluid retention trapped in the body tissues of the hands and it was formerly known as dropsy or hydropsy. Swollen hands can also be caused by injuries since the hands are the most exploited part of the body. Swollen hands occur during pregnancy and also common in women with premenstrual syndrome.
