Physical exam: It would be best to see a podiatrist for exam.
Dr. Steven Sheskier

Exam and MRI: An exam will show thickening of the tendon with the painful area moving when the heel is movedt. An MRI or ultrasound will rule out a partial tear or cystic/myxoid degeneration of the tendon tendon.

Mri,ultrasound, exam: most often your specialist can figure this out with exam but ultrasound or MRI is helpful to confirm and see the extent of the problem
