Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Swelling in the ankles or feet is not always a cause for concern. Can be due to standing for long period of times or fluid retention. If they do continue or you experience other symptoms, this can be a sign of a more serious condition and should be seen by a doctor. Hope this was helpful?
