There is evidence of skeletal metastases with abnormal foci

Customer Question

There is evidence of skeletal metastases with abnormal foci involving skull, throughout the thoracic spine, left iliac bone, manubrium, right 7th and 9th ribs posterioly and a tiny faint focus of activity in the mid-to distal shaft on the left humerus. There is some mild irregular activity at the acetabulum which may relate to degenerative change versus additional metastatic disease. Can Mayo Clinic help me?

Hi Sandra. Much depends on getting a tissue diagnosis. Is this cancer for sure? Where is the primary? What cell type is it? What stage is it at exactly?

You need to see an oncologist. They have excellent ones at Mayo, so this would be a reasonable place to get top notch care.
