Mamagram sept 2012 ok. Have had chest CT with contrast. Chest xrays and multiple mris of spine. Would any of that reflected anything on shoulder mets?
Yes. The chest ct should be able to detect shoulder bone metastases (mets). It has to be viewed with "bone windows".
Shoulder mets. Chest xrays and chest ct and MRI of the spine are not dedicated for the shoulder bone. The shoulders may have been looked at with these studies but I am not sure of the completeness of those view. You need to talk to the radiologist and see if he would recommend dedicated shoulder bone xrays or the ones already obtained are enough.
How likely am I to have a malignancy. Up rt back pain deep in shoulder chest CT ok. Throstic MRI ok. Mamagram ok. Us right breast ok. Temps off and on?
Hello again. Similar questions from you in the past. No malignancy reportedly thus far, despite extensive evaluation. Unlikely to have mslignancy , based on info provided here. Follow up with your docs. Read more...
Sounds very unlikely. All your imaging studies are normal, so likelihood of malignancy seems incredibly low. You might investigate this pain as musculoskeletal. Very common to have pain on the medial, or inside portion of the scapula, where it attaches to the vertebral column. A chiropractor or massage therapist might be of help to help isolate this pain and address it musculoskeletally. Just an idea. Read more...
