You have a fracture: You have a fracture that appears to include a tendon attached to or nearby that was torn probably earlier than the injury since it is said to be chronic but this would depend on the age of the fracture. The fracture may be into the joint or there may be inflammation related to the fracture itself as well as the chronic tendon injury. We would need more information regrading the imaging to answer.
