Very unlikely: It would be unlikely to recur but some patients(10-15% can relapse in 5-10 years). So annual monitoring is advised.
Dr. Joshua Garren
Radiation Oncology 24 years experience
Unlikely: Bone cancer is rare in patients with psas under 20. As a mentor of mine once said, though "the good thing about cancer is that it gets worse." what he meant was that if you have had bony pain for a while and if it has not been getting worse, then it is unlikely to be cancer.
