Also thanks to Spinbiscuit, Swimom aka Glen, and the rest on my new friends and family here.
I received the final bone scan report along with the scan on CD.
The report reads as followed.
No abnormalities are detected in the pelvis.
Specifically, no abnormalities are noted in the right ilium.
There is a small area of increased activity noted in the skull or brain.
This is located anteriorly in either the left frontal or temporal bone.
However, this small area of increased activity could also be in the brain tissue itself as Tc-MDP can cross the blood brain barrier.
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.
Lastly, my PSA dated 7 Dec 06 is 1.9, fPSA 27% - Cause of rise prostatitis
The hip lesions are Arthritis/ bone growth – Mine is most likely secondary to Paget’s bone disease which also explains the PSA spike. As PSA change/ Prostatitis can be a symptom of Paget’s bone disease.
