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

This could be one of: several possibilities the most common being a ganglion cyst or possibly a small fatty tumor called a lipoma. If it changes in size or you are not sure concerning what it is especially if it is firm, irregular and appears fixed (not mobile) get it checked out. ...Read more

Depends how your: ruptured it, and what recommendations your orthopedic surgeon has on the extent of rupture, type of repair needed. Since it involved weight bearing, the recovery will depend on what else is also injured along with this, and not adding more to it. Let your doctor dictate what activity you can do, or not do, so you can have full recovery. It may take a few months to heal,along with physical therapy. ...Read more
