My sister plays lacrosse and 5 hours after a tournament she started getting muscle spams on her left leg. We didnt go to doctor since she has always had a bad ankle. Its been three weeks and its getting better and she can walk on it but she still has pain. We went to walgreens health care and they told her it was a sprain, but she is worried she has cancer.. I dont know hoe reliable they can be since they didnt make an xray or anything it she wore a boot the first two weeks and she didnt complain at all, she stopped wearing it and she said it didnt hurt to walk but still got muscular lain on shin and low calf. Right now she is wearing the boot again and experiences little pain when in rest

It might be something more than a sprain, but cancer is probably the least likely thing. Why doesn't she make an appointment with a GP? That's what they're for.

Sprains can take weeks/months to get right, longer if she didn't follow instructions for rest and gentle exercise. Could well be ligament damage and you can get pain while they heal. Can she go to gp for a referral to physio or pay for a sports physio assessment.
