Topic: Bone Mets with no signs anywhere else
I had a 3rd recurrence of CC in January of this year. A couple small masses in the liver, couple small spots in left lung and a mass on a lymph node. I went on chemo, gemzar and oxy for four months. After 2 months, on chemo a PET scan showed no signs of cancer anywhere. Great news and fairly shocking as I know this is not normally the result. I continued with the chemo for the planned 4 months. Last week I had another PET scan and received the results yesterday. The good news is there is still no signs of cancer in my liver, lungs or lymph nodes. The potential bad news is there is an area in the bones of my shoulder that lit up and looks like cancer. I am working to get a biopsy scheduled for confirmaiton.
My oncologist said he would be surprised to see it show up in the shoulder bone when it was cleaned up everywhere else. Has anyone else seen a recurrence show up only in the bones?
I may be jumping to conclusions and maybe it isn't cancer but it looks very much like it is.
