In brief: Many things

There are a number of things that can cause swelling in the foot and leg.
This is a very nonspecific symptom. I recommend that someone with swelling should be seen by orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon for a definitive diagnosis. One in your area can be found at www.Aofas.Org.
