It is difficult to make a diagnosis with the info you gave, if the leg (calf) is swollen and sore it could be a deep vein thrombosis. If the vein is tender and red it could be thromboflebitis, but it could also be the knee joint that is causing the pain. Best would be to have a doctor examine the area to see what the problem is.
