Causes Of Bone Lesion
Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more
What could be a large ill defined bone lesion with prominent hypointensity on T1-weighted images and predom hyperintensity on t2? Can it cause ab pain
Radiologist: I would not expect a t2 lesion to cause abdominal distress. In these situations I feel your primary care physician should sit down and review the images with the radiologist who interpreted your study, ask the radiologist what possibilities could explain these findings and then ask him what further imaging studies, biopsy or referral to an appropriate specialist would be most helpful.Further study ...Read more
No: While both bone lesion (spurs or osteophytes) and discs can compress nerves and cause symptoms, the bone lesion does not cause the discs to bulge. If you mean a condition called spondylolisthesis or spondylolysis, then the instability from these conditions can cause the vertebra to move apart in an abnormal way, in which case the disc bulge may result from that. ...Read more
Could a lesion within the right medial ilium bone cause pain in my hip just below my back and into the right side of my bottom?
Yes, possibly: Your ilium is the large wing-shaped pelvic bone. The medial portion of your ilium is the part closer to your spine. A lesion in your ilium could cause pain in your back and buttock area, but so could many other things including a compressed nerve (from a bulging disc), a tight piriformis muscle, or inflammation in your sacroiliac joint. It sounds like your pain "refers", making me think nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bone lesion: There are many potential things here, and a malignant tumor is one of the least likely things at your age. Cysts, infection, numerous benign lesions and the rare cancer can all present as a radiographic finding. A good radiologist will be able to give the likely possibilities, but if a biopsy is needed, many of these require someone with significant experience with bone lesions. ...Read more
Can an ankle cystic bone lesion cause burning and warmth? What type of treatment is available. Physical therapy provided no relief.
Possibly: It depends on where the cyst is located, how big it is, and what it is close to. I recommend you see an ankle specialist for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
Bone mets: Some bone mets stimulate an abnormal bone formation response. Osteoblasts are the cells that form bone. If this response predominates, the met looks dense(sclerotic) relative to adjacent bone, and are called osteoblastic. If instead the mets cause a bone destructive response, they are called osteolytic. Some cancers can cause both lytic or blastic lesions. ...Read more
