In medical parlance, swelling, turgescence or tumefaction is a transient abnormal enlargement of a body part or area not caused by proliferation of cells. It is caused by accumulation of fluid in tissues. It can occur throughout the body (generalized), or a specific part or organ can be affected (localized). Swelling is usually not dangerous and is a common reaction to a inflammation or a bruise. Swelling is considered one of the five characteristics of inflammation; along with pain, heat, redness, and loss of function.

  • تورم (بالإنجليزية: Swelling) في مجال الطب هو توسّع غير طبيعي لجزء من الجسم أو منطقة ما ، لا تسبب ورماً دائم للخلايا . وهو ناتج عن تراكم السوائل في الأنسجة . يُمكن أن يحدث التورّم في جميع أنحاء الجسم (بشكل عام)، أو جزء أو جهاز معين يمكن أن تتأثر (موضعي). يُعتبر الورم إحدى خمس خصائص للالتهاب، مع الألم والحرارة والإحمرار وفقدان وظيفة العضو. بتطور الورم يُسمى "تضخم"للإشارة إلى زيادة حجم العضو، مثل ضخامة الأطراف وتضخم الطحال وتضخم الكبد. أي جزء من الجسم قد يستجيب بالورم لإصابات العدوى أو المرض. والورم قد يحدث بشكل خاص في الكاحل، إذا كان الجسم لا تمر السوائل فيه بشكل جيد.

  • In medical parlance, swelling, turgescence or tumefaction is a transient abnormal enlargement of a body part or area not caused by proliferation of cells. It is caused by accumulation of fluid in tissues. It can occur throughout the body (generalized), or a specific part or organ can be affected (localized). Swelling is usually not dangerous and is a common reaction to a inflammation or a bruise. Swelling is considered one of the five characteristics of inflammation; along with pain, heat, redness, and loss of function. In a general sense, the suffix "-megaly" is used to indicate a growth, as in hepatomegaly, acromegaly, and splenomegaly. A body part may swell in response to injury, infection, or disease. Swelling, especially of the ankle, can occur if the body is not circulating fluid well. If water retention progresses to a symptomatic extent, swelling results. Generalized swelling, or massive edema (also called anasarca), is a common sign in severely ill people. Although slight edema may be difficult to detect to the untrained eye, especially in an overweight person, massive edema is very obvious. (en)
  • La tumefazione è, in campo medico, un aumento del volume dei tessuti causato dalla presenza di edema e/o ematoma. Quando localizzata al cranio in seguito a un trauma fisico, viene comunemente chiamata bernoccolo. (it)
  • Em medicina, turgidez, turgência, turgescência ou inchaço são termos que designam o aumento da dimensão de um ou mais órgãos, causado pelo acúmulo excessivo de fluidos nos tecidos, denominado de edema. Qualquer parte do corpo pode inchar em resposta a uma lesão, infecção ou enfermidade, assim como em consequência de um caroço ou íngua. Também pode ocorrer turgidez, especialmente nos tornozelos, em razão de problemas circulatórios. (pt)
