In brief: It is possible

An x-ray, bone scan or MRI can help make that diagnosis or rule it out.
See an orthopedist or foot and ankle specialist.

In brief: Stress fracture

Yes there is a chance it could be a stress fracture if you have a history if impact exercise.
Rest the leg and get an x-ray and then possibly a mri.

In brief: It's possible

Can also be contusion or severe tendonitis as well as nerve entrapment.
Is their swelling? Is there burning? Any wound or skin abnormalities? The answer to these questions can provide important clues.
