Umm, are we talking ceramic/porcelain tile or linoleum type tile? The latter is likely to contain asbestos and I might also be concerned about the content of the adhesive itself. The former should be fine.
Depending on how uncomfortable you are with removing the tile yourself (that is, depending on how scared you are of hurting yourself) you can remove it yourself (do some research on the best way first), hire an asbestos abatement contractor (expensive!), or just encapsulate the whole shebang under something like new carpet or a floating floor (like Pergo). You can have it tested if you think it might be clean.
Please be aware that if you have something tested and find it to contain asbestos you are probably obligated to tell the people you sell the house to down the line.
