Have been experiencing intermittent upper back pain x 7 mos. X-RAY 6 mos ago showed no evidence of disease. At Oncologist visit last week he said he’d order an MRI anytime I want. Anyone have bone Mets or spinal tumor found with MRI after clean X-RAY?

Typically pain from bone mets does not come and go, but since it continues to bother you, get to the bottom of whatever it is so you can get relief.

Bone mets is different for everyone. For some (especially once they are big) the pain is constant and debilitating. For others, when mets are small, it just feels like a constant bruise. Others have no idea they have them until they are picked up on a scan for something else.
