Achilles: Swelling can occur/remain with injury or chronic problem. Probably bone issue is chronic, likely years in the making, from chronic tightness.

What exactly : Is your question? Achilles tendonitis and an extra bone. The injury did not cause the extra bone. It could of caused the tendonitis but you did not share what the injury was. Are you asking what to do now? Physical therapy is good for the tendon, sometimes docs advocate immobilization, others like eccentric excercises. Heel lifts may be helpful.Or immobilization in a cam walker type boot.
