Re: Rib Fracture OR rib metastasis

Hi there,

I am 3 years out from Fallopain Tube Cancer (carcinosarcoma) and now have a few new problems showing up. Compression Fracture of the spine and a rib fracture OR rib metastasis.

I'm getting very concerned as to what this may mean. I've done a Bone Scan which showed a compression fracture T12 and some unusual linear activity localizing to the left inferior scapula (shoulder). MIR done shows not on the scapula BUT this could be due to healing fracture or rib metastasis of the left 3rd rib. Now I will do a CT scan.

Has anyone experienced this before?

  • The Rib metastasis means the cancer has spread into the skeleton, MRI report has shown

    lesions, if you have been suffering a lot of pain this could be the reason but would have thought your Oncologist would have explained this to you as they are legally bound to do this. When they speak to you they must use language you understand, hope this has been some help and answers to your query. Good luck with CT scan X

  • Hi Murdina

    Thank you for the reply. I will be doing the CT scan very soon and will ask exactly in simple language to be explained to me. I've been dealing with a family dr BUT now will be having the Oncologist do the CT scan and read the results.

    Thank you all and I will keep you informed.
