Yes: This is a very serious finding and you should be under the care of an oncologist ASAP. Your family physician can make a referral for you.

Bone (Definition)

My dr read the wrong MRI results. Mine showed a bone lesion. I let him know of the mistake but he never addressed the lesion. Should I worry?

My dr read the wrong MRI results. Mine showed a bone lesion. I let him know of the mistake but he never addressed the lesion. Should I worry?

Be kind: Doctors are human and can make mistakes. How they react to such realization is very important. I would in a very kind way return for a visit and ask for a re-review of your MRI and considerations of its meaning. I am confident it will be a good team building effort.

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

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

Can a bone lesion on the spine cause a bulging disc?

Can a bone lesion on the spine cause a bulging disc?

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.

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?

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.

While the standard appearance of a myeloma bone lesion is lytic with no rim, is it possible to have a thin sclerotic rim rarely? Also, can the disease remit temporarily before discovery them resume?

While the standard appearance of a myeloma bone lesion is lytic with no rim, is it possible to have a thin sclerotic rim rarely? Also, can the disease remit temporarily before discovery them resume?

Yes and no.: Anything is possible as regards the x-ray findings. The disease does not go into remission. However one bone might break, gradually heal if there is no soft tissue mass at the site of fracture, only to have another bone break later on.

How long can a bone lesion biopsy stay sore?

How long can a bone lesion biopsy stay sore?

Biopsy pain: Bone biopsies can be very painful. If there is bleeding beneath the fibrous membrane covering the bone (periosteum), the pain can persist for weeks and even for a month or so. Mild heat may be a good way to treat this pain. Hopefully, you biopsy results were good.

An MRI showed a lesion on my left iliac bone. Should I be concerned that this could be something serious?

Just concerned: Enough that this should be further evaluated. There are usually more benign findings but it should not be ignored in terms of following up with your physician as to whether any further testing is in order.

When there is a root canal retreatment, does the endodontist usually fill the lesion at the tip root with bone material for the lesion to heal quick?

RC Retreatment: RC retreatment is different from an apicoectomy, which may or may not involve the placement of bone at the surgical site. Discuss the treatment with your endodontist and his/her reasonings for bone fill material in your specific situation.

Bone island. ..?: There are treatments for benign lesions of bone that are symptomatic. First, see a specialist and be certain of the diagnosis (orthopedic oncologist best); occ. A biopsy may be performed to confirm DX although many'lesions' will show defining characteristics on x-rays/ mri.Some benign 'lesions' will weaken the bone and cause well- disguised fractures that need treatment.

Incidental finding: This is an incidental finding that would be unrelated to reason for the test. It is a benign and common finding in bone that does not progress to anything. Just a "it's there"'comment by the radiologist.

Dr found bone lesion on knee month ago but so their not worried and to follow up in 6 mths. Having knee pain. What could this be? Bone cancer a poss?

Your duty to ask: It's your right and your responsibility as a 21st century health care consumer to know what your imaging study showed and what the implications are. If it's classic Osgood-Schlatter's, cancer risk is zero. Otherwise, get the radiology report and see what you can learn.
