Swelling: You certainly are going to have swelling associated with a fracture of your ankle. However, if it is increasing going towards your knee and thigh that is concerning and you should be seen right away. If you have a cast and you are having numbness you also should be seen. Otherwise, elevation and ice are your friends.
