In brief: Hip and Knee Pain

You have to take care of your concern.
If you are concerned about bone cancer ask your doctor to work it up until you are satisfied. This begins with an extensive history and a physical examination. Hands should be put on you during the exam to evaluate to source of your pain. Xrays do not give you the diagnosis, they help you confirm the diagnosis after a history and physical exam.

In brief: Negative x ray

Would probably rule out cancer at least for now.
More likely and injury and it needs a more detailed examination to find the cause. Thorough orthopedic exam and possible MRI needed. See your ortho doctor soon., .
