Brief Answer:
Could be bony spur

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for asking.
I am Dr. Jyothi BL and I will be answering your query.
Based on your query and report attached, my opinion is as follows:
1. It could be a bone spur.
2. As advised, a low dose CT scan or a bone biopsy will be helpful.
3. Due to young age, and non specific findings at present on radiological investigations, tumor cannot be thought of.

Hope it helps.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
