Depends on a lot of: Factors, like the bone involved, type of cancer, treatments so far received, and where has it spread, whether the treatments are working or not. Your oncologist and his team (like the radiologist) might be able to give your more precise answers, as they'll have explanations for all these factors. Good luck.
