Hard Lump On Achilles Tendon
Lump on Achilles tendon. Mri shows nothing but the lump is visable just looking at my foot. Drs r stumped! very painful all the time. Any ideas?

I have pain in my Achilles tendon. I can be standing still, driving or walking. What is causing this and how can I stop it? There is a small lump also

Should the smaller saphenous vein feel harder behind, and descending from the knee, than near the Achilles tendon?
Saphenous vein: no. Veins should not feel "hard". They should feel spongy or soft. It may be a phlebitis or clotting of that vein. Ibuprofen 3 times a day or alleve 2 x a day as an anti inflammatory helps along with a warm compress dressing can reduce that feeling in the vein. Go see your PCP. ...Read more
