Hi there, I am a 28 years old man and as long as I remember, I do not involved in any accident or any major sports injury, however I felt slight pain when massage my heel. It was after doing X ray only I noticed there is an uneven area on the tip of my calcaneus (heel). It looked like it has been through some friction, hence the uneven surface.
The report says: No evidence of any abnormality.
The ankle mortice is intact.
The calcaneum is normal.
But Im still worry about it as it will feel slight pain sometimes even if I do not touch it. May I know is it a big deal and what should I do to make it recover to normal? or should I avoid doing any sports? Do I need extra cushion to cover that area when wearing shoes? Thanks very much

For now, you should not do anything that could further complicate or injure your heel as playing sports or standing for a long period of time.
