I have to have another biopsy
Two different MRIs have shown I have a lesion on my sacrum and the more sophisticated MRI couldnt explain it away as a cyst etc. so they have to biopsy it.

Im not sure how they will biopsy it since its pretty deep.

3. Second biopsy came back clean. Thank you so much.
I go back for my first 90 day check on 4/29 to make sure no recurrence of the original cancer.

9. MRI 3 weeks ago showed "suspicious" dime size thing on my sacrum.
Then I had a full body bone scan to further investigate. Doc says they don't know what it is but are not concerned, that a biopsy would be tricky and he doesn't think it is necessary. It all started because of pain down there. I still have the pain and the "suspicious" thing. mmmmmm

10. The Doc's words aren't very comforting, are they?
Sorry you have to deal with the worry and frustration and pain. Hopefully the doctor is correct and all will be ok. :pals:

11. Hey guys - help me
I've been going for CT scans, x-rays, bloodwork etc for a fracture of the pelvis. They found a lesion near the fracture and did a biopsy and this is what they said it is: perisymphyseal lytic lesion. Now the orthopedic dr. is refferring me to an oncologist. I go Nov.4.

I'm scared to death - this just came out of the blue. My husband is devastated and I don't know where to start or what to do. I'm 59 and haven't been very religeous and now I'm starting to wonder if this is punishment for things I've done in my life. I've always considered myself a good person. Not great, not perfect, but a decent person. Damn this is so hard. :cry:

I was going to start a thread and ask for help but, I can barely type or think. And Redbear, your post sounded similar to my problem.
