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. ...Read more
