Bone Scan Results

Postby Constantine » Tue Jul 26, 2016 12:56 am

Can you explain to me what increased intense hypermetabolic activity would mean?  My husband has prostate cancer and his bone scan reported this.  They recommend further xrays.

It means that the bones are reacting to something, in a patient with prostate cancer we are worried that something is metastatic disease.  Of course, it's hard for me to give you a straight answer without the images, but I'll say this:  let's get the X-rays and decide what's going on, furthermore, if the PSA levels are below 10, chances are you're not going to have bone metastases; talk to the urologist or oncologist and they will figure it out for sure, perhaps after consulting with the radiologist.
