Swelling on the back of the foot above the heel

The bump is painful to the touch. Does this sound like a spur or plantar faciatis? Please help. Thank you.

How often are you geting swelling on the back of your heel? Do certain shoes aggrivate it? How long is this conditon going on? Have you had X-Rays taken? Have you been doing any home care such as heat, anti-inflammatories, etc? Let me know and I will try to help you.
