Sclerotic lesion in the sacrum can have many reasons most commonly being a Bone island which is benign occurence of no consequence.Bone islands are round or ovoid, intramedullary, sclerotic foci that do not extend beyond the cortex. The long axis of a bone island typically parallels the long axis of the involved bone. Bone islands appear homogeneously sclerotic, with "thorny" radiating bone spicules that extend from the center of the lesion and blend with the trabeculae

However, a focal lesion in the bone can have many reasons inculding neoplastic etiology particularly in a older age group whic may warrant further investigation. This would be decided by your treating physician and ur clinical profile.
