IN February I got 3 large swollen areas on right thigh and one on left. Alond with this I have pain in both thighs but it does not keep me awake.I had a MRI no masses or lesions. Dr said MRI was normal but to see a Dermatologist to do a biopsy of the swollen skin. The areas just look like huge hives on the thighs and I have a lot of thigh pain. MRI also said "mild heterogeneity and enhancement of marrow signal within the proximal and fempral shafts, considered nonspecific. This may represent residual hematopoietic marrow, recommend correlation with CBC. which we did, C reactive was 9 and sed rate was 22. (which have been creeping up the last few months) and RBC, hematocrit and hemoglobin were all at the last point of the range which have dropped down since November. My doctor got all freaked out and said she might refer me to a Blood doctor. But the Rheumy doctor that ordered the test saw no concern. Do I need to see a Oncologist? I also have had a swollen distended abdomen in the last few months with some painful lumps next to the belly button. Am schedule for EGD and ultrasound. I also have had 8-10 atypical moles removed with a lot more that I know I have and we are watching them.
