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?
It is odd: That nothing would show on the mri! was the MRI performed with and without contrast. Soft tissues are usually very well defined on an mri. Any type of mass or even swelling would normally show on the study.
An exam is needed!: There are a number of things. A painful lump on the tendon can range from a cyst to a calcification, or even the beginning of a rupture. There needs to be more info given. I will say that in view that it is on the achilles tendon (a very large tendon) and you are having pain, it needs to be looked at by a physician.See 2 more doctor answers
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
Piezogenic papules: "small lumps" could be due to a variety of skin or soft tissue conditions. One common cause is piezogenic pedal papules which are small white bumps that may form on the outside of the heel. These bumps are more prominent when pressure is exerted on the feet when standing. These papules are normally painless, however, in some cases mild to moderate pain may exist with added pressure to the heel.
I have a painless lump on my anterior tibialis ligament and my Achilles tendon on my left foot. No trauma. What could it be.
58y/o female- sore, warm to the touch, quarter sized lumps below her Achilles' tendon. Will call doc Monday if not gone, but could this be gout?
Is it possible? Yes: Does it sound like it? Not really. First off that's not really a joint area and gout usually affects joints. Without seeing the lumps it is hard to take a guess....I am it sure why hey would "disappear" by Monday.....if there is anyway you can show us a picture that would be helpful in us helping you.
Tear: Aanytime there is a bump that is tender in the achillles area consider a partial tear and you would be at hiogh riskk for acute complete tear. Stop doing any jumping running, or stressing the achilles and seek medical attention. A littl rest and treatment now will save six months of recovery later.See 1 more doctor answer
Options: It may take a physical examination to get to the bottom of things. Clearly, it could be a "growth" or just an enlargement of existing tissues. The enlargement could be from the bone immediately under the tendon, on the tendon or from the tissues immediately on top of the tendon. Whether it is new growth, part of a repair process or due to mechanical irritation are just some of the subtleties.
My active, athletic 19-year old son has pain in his Achilles tendon. He also feels a slight bump. What is it and what to do?
Go see the doctor...: The achilles tendon may have been injury and the bump may be noting the area. Have it checked because the injury may have occurred days, weeks, months before and the "bump" may be scar tissue that has developed. If unchecked, there is a risk of rupture. Don't wait until that happens. See the doctor and have it examined properly.See 2 more doctor answers
What can I do about scar tissue (a raised bump) on my Achilles tendon, which causes pain and interferes with footwear?
Had an impact injury on foot. When I point my toe downwards hard, and bring it back up, my Achilles tendon in the two spots on both sides hurts bad.
Achilles tendon: Sounds like you injured your achilles tendon. If there is even a small chance of a partial tear, you need to treat this, may need mri, need to immobilize ankle. Se your local podiatrist, don't fool around with an achilles tendon injury (note this is advice only. You must contact your primary care physician or podiatrist for an examination).See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: The cast will immobilize the foot, ankle and tendon to allow the tendon to heal.
Should the smaller saphenous vein feel harder behind, and descending from the knee, than near the Achilles tendon?
Soft bulge like bump between inner ankle bone and Achilles tendon. Painless and has been here about a year. Doesn't move around. What is this?
Have it evaluated: Please have this evaluated. Most masses in this area are benign, but prompt evaluation is always the best medicine. May have to have an MRI for evaluation. A good physical exam of the area will be helpful. See your foot and ankle specialists!
I have some sort of bump/wart on the back foot above the heel and below the Achilles tendon. What could it be? I've had for almost a year.
May be callous: If it is on a place where your shoe rubs the skin, it may be a callous. You may try different shoes that do not rub on that site.
Can one palpate the peroneal artery or is it below superficial muscle? Does it run on out side of the Achilles tendon? I feel something hard in area.
Pulse Check: There are 3 palpable pulses in the ankle/foot. The peroneal is palpable above and in front of the outside ankle bone (lateral malleolus). The posterior tibial is palpable on the inside of the ankle alongside the Achilles and behind the inside ankle bone (medial malleolus). The dorsalis pedis is palpated on top of the foot.
My achilles tendon is painful (even at rest), red scabby bump formed, difficulty walking or carrying anything a little heavy. Shin splits. Depressed.
Achilles pain: Rest and see an orthopedic doctor and take some antiinflammatories for starters.
Is there achilles, soleus, gastrocnemius, tendon injuries/degeneration that are hard to see on MRI? Hardness alongside Achilles but MRI is normal
Mri may not show it: MRi primarily identifies soft tissue problems, muscle, tendon, fascia, etc. Calcifications are more difficult to identify. Plain radiographs and CT show calcifications to better advantage. Your physician who referred you for these studies should explain your options if this calcification is symptomatic. Calcifications in achilles tendon are often related to spur.
Would a mass in the Achilles feel as hard as the Achilles or would it feel a little softer than the achilles?
Depends: Mass could be calcified tendon which would feel harder, or it could be ganglionic cyst or bursa which are softer.
I have a hard lump that is sore on the back of my ankle right next to my achilies tendon. What could it be? I've had it for about a year and a half and its causong discomfort
Ganglion cyst?: Difficult to say what it could be without seeing, but it could be a ganglion cyst. Thisis a tumor or swelling on top of a joint or the covering of a tendon. It looks like a spongy sac (cyst). Inside the cyst is a thick, sticky, clear, colorless, jellylike material. A physical exam is often needed to diagnose a ganglion cyst. See your doctor for evaluation & treatment options.See 2 more doctor answers
