In brief: Injury to the bone
The break in the bone it the final stage of an injury to the foot, there damages to the tissues of the foot which cause the swelling.

In brief: Instability.
The swelling is your body's way of stabilizing the injured tissue for initial tissue repair. It is, in a sense, nature's cast.
The more movement of the injury site, the more swelling will occur. Reduce the movement to reduce the swelling.

In brief: Many things
Some swelling is needed for healing.
But increased swelling can be caused by walking too much, not elevating the foot, infection. If excess, you need to see your doctor.
