Abnormal Bone In Head
Unlikely: Bone cancer is rare, so it is likely not a cancer right out of the gate. Where is this lump, behind the ear? If so, it's likely normal anatomy (mastoid process).

sacroiliac joints bilaterally which correspond to lesions noted on the CT pelvis consistent with bony me
Possibly metastases: Nuclear bone scans usually demonstrate areas of increased bone metabolism, the bone reacting to a stimulus, such as tumor, fracture, infection, etc.Bone scan is very sensitive but not specific.

New bone matrix: The injection is something that your body uses like a phosphate (methylene diphosphonate). In general when your body makes new bone, it will "grab" some of this.

Kidneys filter out the rest. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chest pain, swollen or maybe moved bone near collar bone in the side of the heart. Swollen lymph node in neck and arm.
Hard to say.: When widening of blood vessels is noted on plain x-ray studies of the back or abdomen we mostly are referring to the abdominal aorta or its' major branches such as the renal, bowel, or iliac arteries.

Headache in different spots-behind eyes, above temple, in back/down back of neck. Had 2CTscans recent for head injury. Would they have seen a tumor?
