Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or the actual radiographs it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. Hypodensity within the substance of a bone could represent lytic bone lesions, cysts, bone tumours etc. Outside the substance of a bone there could be a number of other possibilities related to the soft tissues. Further investigations/ tests may be required for a definite diagnosis. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
