In brief: No rules for that

If you have a bone spur it may or may not grow.
Unfortunately you have had bone cancer and that causes a completely different concern for any unnaturel growth. It also showed you already have chronic pain and it may have nothing to do with a bone spur. Many people have bone spurs that show up on mris and ct scans and they are totally incidental and do not cause pain.
