Bone X-Ray Showing Abnormal Results - Looking for any answers doctors and experts

My son had his cast removed today from a fracture he incurred earlier. When they did the xray to check the healing of the fracture, they also found what seems to be a lesion or growth in his bone on the xray. This is his right leg just above his ankle. The doctor said we needed to immediately get an MRI and bone scan. We are freaking out!! Could this be cancer? What is the likelihood that this could be cancer and if not, what could it be. I understand a definite answer can't be given but any guidance will be greatly appreciated between now and his MRI and bone scan. Thank you in advance.

I'm sorry there is no doctor or expert here to read x-rays, or is there anyway to diagnose over the internet.
How did the MRI go? I hope all is well and you check in.
