BoBennett Posted July 1, 2004 Share Posted July 1, 2004 Hello, I am beginning to question my DX. Though the primary has been biopsied nothing else has. I have had a bone scan, pet scan and x-rays on the rest. All these test indicated that my left humorus and right hip and right orbital are consistent with bony metastasis. I am reluctant to have them biopsy my arm or hip as if they are cancerous then it may further weaken the bone. After six months of miserable pain in my arm and hip, this pain finally left so that’s another reason for my reluctance. My oncologist stated if they did a biopsy on my hip or left arm and it came back negative he wouldn’t believe it anyway. Are there any procedures that are definitive for a biopsy on the bone that is non invasive or doesn’t compromise the already weakened area.
