In brief: If both feet are

Swollen, it's usually due to fluid retention; the most common causes being heart, lungs, liver or kidney.
If one foot is swollen, it usually means something locally is causing the swelling in the foot. If both feet are swollen, see your pcp, but if one foot is swollen, see a podiatrist.

In brief: Many possibilities

Some causes of swelling of the feet can include systemic problems such as hypertension, and problems with the kidneys and localized issues such as arthritis, infection, lymphatic obstruction, blood clots, varicose veins, trauma (fracture, sprain, and tendonitis) and side effects to medication.
Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
