IS a sclerotic lesion cancer?

I went for a lumbar spine MRI and the findings are:
at L1-2, the disk is desiccated and mildly bulges. Very minimal impression upon thecal sac is noted, no stenosis. A slight counterclockwise rotatory scoliosis is prevent at this level

at L2-3, there is no disc herniation, spinal stenosis, or foraminal narrowing.

at L3-4, there is no disc herniation, spinal stenosis, or foraminal narrowing.

at L4-5, the disk is desiccated and very slightly bulges with minimal flattening the ventral thecal sac. Ther's moderate facet joint arthrosis, no definite foraminal stenosis.

at L5-S1-the disk is desiccated in the disc space is narrowed posteriorly. There is a right posterolateral broad based herniated disc. Ventrally is very slight flattening of the ventral thecal sac. In the foramen that this does cause moderate foraminal narrowing with minimal impression upon the L5 nerve root on the right. There are two circular lessions in the L5 vertebral body. Anteriorly there is a 9 mm scerotic lesion in the left side of the vertebral bodies is a 9 mm lesion which shows T2 hyperintensity but is slightly hypointense on T1. This does not represent a typical hemangioma this could represent a atypical hemangioma, but other etiologies cannot be excluded.

1) right lateral and far lateral herniated disc L5-S1. Please correlate to any right L5 radiculopathy.
2) 2 bone lessions in the L5 vertebral body as described above. Bone scan recommended for further evaluation

Are they saying I might have cancer?
or something along those lines?
