Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
it sounds like you are worried about having a cancer
do you have bad anxiety symptoms?
most non specific lytic lesions in the calvarium are due to benign bone cysts
and are not due to cancer.
you don't have a primary care doctor?
seeing a primary care doctor would be better than just going to the ER over and over again.
"constant headache with pain shooting down my neck, fever, feeling constantly weak, nauseated."
these are pretty non specific symptoms and could be due to viral infection, viral gastritis, severe anxiety symptoms, excessive stomach acid.
how high have your fevers been?
this can be due to viral or bacterial infection.
have you tried to take some tylenol to bring down your fever?
have you tried zantac or prilosec or maalox to help decrease stomach acid?
prilosec can take a few days to weeks to decrease stomach acid.
medications like zantac or maalox or pepto bistmal can work faster to help settle your stomach
ginger tea and flat ginger ale could help nausea
they should have given you a prescription for zofran or compazine to help your nausea symptoms.
then most likely viral infection then
this is to check on that lytic lesion
to see if you have other lytic lesions in your body
you may benefit from a brain CT scan as well.
that is why they are doing a bone scan
to look for other spots of lytic bone lesions in the rest of your body
most likely they will not find any
most likely it is a benign hemangioma that caused the lytic lesion in your skull bone.
