Hard Lump on Leg

My son was hit in the shin by a baseball, and now has an oblong rock hard lump on his shin.  His pediatrician said it is probably a calcium deposit, but ordered an xray just to make sure it isn't anything serious.  My question is how long does it take for calcium deposits to form, his injury was about 4 weeks ago. Is that enough time for something to form?  How worried should we be that it could be something else?

Thank you-
