Accuracy of Mammograms
I have a mammogram every year and and had no significant findings..Most recently in July.  In August I fell and injured my knee.  The radiological report suggests that I have osteoblastic metastasis and the radiologist suggests it may be from a primary malignancy....Is there a link between other forms of cancer and this type of finding..What should I be asking for as a follow up?  Do I get another mammogram?  Is there another test that will more accurately help my doctors determine what is happening to me?

I would think that you have already been advised as to the proper investigation from this point. Some type of Scan or MRI would seem to be in order here. I don't see that a Mammogram would be of any value since they have all been negative in the past. You might also consider having your films read by another Radiologist as a second opinion. IF and this is a big IF this is due to metastises then the primary site must be found for any treatment to be effective. A consult with an Oncologist would also be a good idea.   Regards ....
