Thanks Erin, Elcamino & mom
I just got home from seeing my Urologist. He was late showing up, was stuck in surgery, my appointment turn into a 5 PM. This worked out fine for me since we had time to talk and I was able to ask just what a sclerotic lesion in the right ilium is.
OK are we all ready for the answer?
It’s an Arthritis bone growth – Mine is most likely secondary to Paget’s bone disease which also explains the PSA spike. As PSA change can be a symptom of Paget’s bone disease.
I was told that ortho might be in my future,
I received the final bone scan report in today’s mail.
1. Abnormal bone scan
2. Abnormality- There is a small area of increase activity noted in the skull or brain.
3. No abnormalities detected in the right ilium.
I have a vascular loop on the brain, first thought to be a brain aneurysm, this might be the activity noted. As for nothing detected in the hip, pelvis, if a sclerotic lesion is 1 cm or less only 4% will be detected on a bone scan. Sorry I forgot to bookmark the report/link.
