Hi, had an x-ray of my right pelvis due to pain in hip. X-ray shown large "white" area in this general area, an not concentrated on the bone. He has ordered an MRI. Any idea what this could be? He also ordered lab work.

How old are you?

any other medical issues?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
61, osteo-arthritis, kidney stones. Have been extremely fatigued lately and aching all over

Do you have a copy of the xray report?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
are you still there?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No, but it showed almost the entire right side of the pelvis area much whiter than the left side

I see.

It could be something called a kidney stone or stone in the color

did they say this is possible?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No, it was an area about the size of my hand

Ok. That is interesting

I'm not 100% sure what that is.

It could just be artifact from the xray.

However, tumors and things like that wouldn't just be a white shadown

It would be a localized mass
