With such little information, it is difficult to give you a reason for the swelling in your hands. Edema is swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in your body's tissues. Although edema can affect any part of your body, it's most commonly noticed in your hands, arms, feet, ankles and legs.

Edema occurs when tiny blood vessels in your body (capillaries) leak fluid and the fluid builds up in surrounding tissues, leading to swelling. Edema is a side effect of certain medications,

Consult your physician to determine the cause of the swelling. If the cause is underlying medical condition, you will want to get proper treatment.
