In brief: Injury

One-sided swelling in leg and ankle is usually associated with injury, but a condition called chronic venous insufficiency may also be the cause of it.
Try elevating your legs and if the swelling goes down, its more venous than injury. See a podiatrist for a more thorough evaluation.

In brief: Visit a doctor

There are many possible causes for this, but swelling of a leg without an obvious cause should be evaluated by a physician.
One cause we always worry about is a blood clot. A delay in diagnosis of a clot can be quite risky.
