Achilles tendon lump

I have a large hard bump on my Achilles tendon that is painful. Just recently I have a second smaller soft lump appearing above the large hard one on the Achilles tendon. Do you have any advice? Pain is getting worse and my leg sometimes buckles out from underneath me when I get a shooting pain up the back of my leg!

    Hello and thank you for the question. Have you ever had your Achilles tendon evaluated by a Podiatrist? I would have an evaluation to rule out any degeneration or partial tear. Over time the tendon can start to thicken which means it is actually getting weaker. The Podiatrist may order an MRI to better evaluate the tendon and then make recommendations off of that test. Good luck!
