You have a "density" which suggests an abnormality. Be optimistic and let the diagnostic process continue,
Not having viewed your x-ray, it is impossible to make an opinion. The density could represent a growth, which may be benign and not malignant (not all growths are cancer) , an infection (tb), fluid ([pneumonia), or fibrosis (from smoking or exposure to an antigen, such as stone dust or asbestos).
Continue with the evaluation and post back when they come to a conclusion.
Thanks for your response. I really appreciate it. Do you know if a bone scan is the right evaluation? I've been doing some reading on the internet (probably a little too much reading!) but in general it seems that a bone scan is used to see if there is cancer that has metasticized in the bone. Will it also show primary cancer if there is one?
