Context matters: Whoever ordered the X-rays should be answering your questions. It does not matter what it could be or how likely it is. What matters is what it is and how to treat. If your doctors don't know yet, they certainly will be working to find out the cause. If they haven't told you anything yet, it could be they don't know yet. If they do know, they will tell the patient or his/her designee.
