Bad pain in shin. Why does it hurt?

Hi, I am 16 female, if that helps. And I have been getting a bad pain from the side of my shin, I went to the doctors and he told me it might almost be a stress fracture , but he wouldnt tell me about it. and how can it be almost? I do alot of dancing, which has put some strain on it, but it dosnt always hurt. Just when I put alot of pressure on it from exercise. So I was just wondering what that is exactly, and should I be getting an exra?

The stress fracture is found in hectic runners, army drills, and dancers. This is due to excessive stress of low grade for a long period with tiered muscles.The fractures can be seen in plain X ray .If not seen then digital x ray or NCCT are required to see the Internal fracture . treatment is rest and NSAIDS.
