Bony : Bony metastatic disease refers to cancer that has spread from another site to the bone, commonly called mets; (according to this report the mets are found in the right hip (right iliac) and left fifth rib). The kidneys and soft tissue are fine. Does your dad have prostate, lung or another form of cancer? I am confused as to why you are posting this question here. His doctors should have explained the results in detail with him and the family members that are involved in his care. Please make sure all doctors involved are keeping your dad informed of all the details/results regarding his condition. Take care.
