approx a year ago, I started with a pain in my ribs on my left side (cancer was on my right). I waited it out to see if it would go away and it didn’t. In the fall, I got an X-ray and ct scan (w & w/o contrast) of the area. Ribs looked fine, but there was a cyst on spleen that the report suggests may be source of pain. My MO looked at the images herself to make sure and doesn’t think that’s the source of my pain. But she has no idea why I have the pain. Ow the pain is getting worse.
I guess I’d like to know, if it were to intact be mets, could it be missed on a ct scan? Is there a better type of imitating to be had? (Ex: MRi, PET scan, etc). They’re just chalking it up to a bruised rib or something like that, that is just taking a while to go away. My last scan was in Decmember.
Thanks in advance
