One of three main types of bone cancer is chondrosarcoma, that arises from cartilage of joints, including ankle joint cartilage. It's a malignant tumor that's treatable with surgery.

What are treatment options? Can spraining or breaking an ankle trigger cellular growth causing this to happen? Would it cause pain or not all of the time?
