CA+Pain - check out: When there is cancer or a cancer history and new bone pain, it should be evaluated. That doesn't necessarily mean expensive tests, but a history, physical exam, and assessment of the potential problem. It could be musculoskeletal non-cancerous pain or ovarian cancer with referred pain, or a metastases in the bone, etc.

Check it: I agree with dr. T. Hopefully your pain is due to arthritis or other bone-joint issues but pain in a cancer patient (particularly if always on the same spot or if worsens with time) should be properly evaluated to rule out metastases.
