Pain in my left leg

I have been experiencing a lot of pain in my left leg and it seems to be localized but in two different areas. First off, I had a baby a little over a year ago and I was huge (belly was 42.5") and he weighed 9 lbs 9 oz and just continued to be a beast from then. So, back to pain in my legs, the first one is on my left shin. I went to doctor and he thought I was a/b to get a stress fracture so suggest cut back on soccer and wear padded shoes. This has not helped. It is like a throbbing pain in just one area but really hurts and not 24/7. The other pain is on the outside of my left thigh. This so hurts to the touch and also gives me shooting pains. Now, I keep trying to play these off but I am so scared of some cancer. My lower back has not gotten any better, from what I am assuming is a big baby and a bad bed, and didn't know if it could have anything to do with my leg pains. I am a 34 yr old female.

Thanks for any advice you can give. And also any reassurance that I am not going to die from cancer.
