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

My ankle is swollen after I badly rolled it on Tuesday, but it doesn't hurt, so can I run on it tomorrow?

My ankle is swollen after I badly rolled it on Tuesday, but it doesn't hurt, so can I run on it tomorrow?

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

two weeks ago I was climbing over something and fell and injured my ankle. It doesn't hurt to walk on it but I can't put pressure on it.It is swollen

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

Do i need an X-ray even though my ankle doesn't hurt but foot is bruised and is a little swollen?  I twisted it 3 days ago.

It depends: If you've been walking on it and the pain is getting better, then no but if you can't walk on it and the pain and swelling isn't going away then see a doctor for x-ray. Otherwise rest ice it elevate it and take some antiinflammatories like advil or aleve. ...Read more
