how accurate is an x-ray for bone mets
How are you doing? I have some clarifications. When were you diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer? What sort of treatment/s did you undergo? Are you currently taking any medications?
In the setting of breast cancer, a possible metastasis is always entertained when a patient develops new or worsening symptoms, unless proven otherwise. In your case, you were not experiencing bone pains previously. I believe you should undergo further examinations to rule out possible bone metastasis. A total body bone scan can be done to check for possible bone metastasis. If the bone scan turns out to be negative or normal, you still need to determine the cause of the bone pains. Perhaps it is secondary to a medication that you may be taking (especially if you are taking an aromatase inhibitor). Even if your x-ray result is negative, you should undergo further examinations to determine the cause of the bone pains.
Hope this helps.
