In brief: Depends on the cause

Swelling can be caused by many things (liver, kidney , heart diseases, and blood clots are the serious ones).
Everyday, reversible non-serious causes are meds (motrin and similar, calcium blockers, hormones). If you don't have a health threatening condition, limiting salt intake (sodium) and keeping your feet elevated will help.
