My fathers ankle has been swollen for over a few weeks, he says it doesn't hurt but it looks as if it is out of place. What can it possibly be?

Read below: The swelling may be due to a mild ankle sprain, lymphedema ( swelling of the lymp nodes to the area) or the veins not being efficient to drain the swelling out of the area, or possibly a soft tissue growth. See your doctor or podiatrist for a more definitive answer. ...Read more

Do this test: Let's assume you injured your left ankle. Stand on your right foot and hop to the right three times, going as far as you can with each hop. Stop at the landing spot after the third hop and change to stand on just your left foot. Now hop to the left three times as far as you can. If you cannot get to your starting point with the injured side, don't run. If you do run, wear an ankle support brace. ...Read more

I think I sprained my ankle three days ago. The ankle has remained swollen even now. But it doesn't hurt at all -- just a little tender.?

Try some RICE: Rest, ice, compression, and elevation should help. Additionally, for the minor pain, Acetaminophen or an anti-inflammatory drug like naproxyn or Ibuprofen can help. ...Read more

Need to be examined: The extent of an ankle sprain is hard to determine. The amount of pain and swelling varies. You need to see a podiatrist or orthopod to determine if the ankle ligaments were seriously damaged, and have the ankle immobilized for a while ...Read more

Time...: Ankle injuries are very notorious for taking a long time to heal. If you are in that much pain, a full exam including x-rays should be done to rule out any fractures. You may need rest and immobilization as well depending on what is found. Have to get on ankle sprains early so they won't drag on for months. ...Read more
