Subchondral edema means there is swelling under the cartilage surface. It happens after injury, arthritis, or anything that causes inflammation. An xray gives that information, also arthritis or fracture should be visualized on the same xray. Treatment would be directed toward the causitive problem.

Dr. Howard R. Fox answered:

What is the definition or description of: Edema?

A collection of

Edema
fluid in the tissues, either caused by something local to the swollen area like an injury or inflammation, or from the body's retention of water. Gravity brings the fluid to the feet & legs in that case. As a general rule, if one foot is swollen, something is wrong with the foot. If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water retention. Hope this helps!

I have subchondral edematous contusion adn fluid around the tendon sheath shoul i do ice massage to remove swelling?

Patience

Tendon
This swelling is a response to trauma. Avoid irritating it by putting it at rest. If can soak in epsom salts that might help. If warm could try gentle cold not massage. NSAIDS or herbal anti-inflammatories like curcumin, thyme, clove, oregano. Eat healthy, don't worry, worry aggravates everything. Your body can heal this, don't get in the way.
