My bone scan has been scheduled for next Monday 11 Dec.
A second free PSA this Tuesday, Urology Thursday 14 Dec.
Physical with PCP Thursday 28 Dec.
I received a requested copy of an x-ray of my hip and pelvis. I had serve pain early last month and back in September. I had seen my neurologist at the VA last month which requested the x-rays because the tripling of my PSA along with the hip, back pain. The x-ray report reads, 1 cm sclerotic lesion within the left acetabulum. In addition there is a second sclerotic lesion in the right iliac wing. Bone scan recommend to rule out metastatic disease.
My questions are can PCa spread this fast with a PSA 2.6 and a negative biopsy?
Can anyone tell me what is a sclerotic lesion, a bone island and a MET?
