Is This Bone Cancer?

Postby caspar » Tue Apr 18, 2017 7:57 pm

I get bone pain mid-shaft of my forearms on both sides, at least a couple times a day.
Especially when pressure is put on them.
They feel pretty weak, almost like if I put too much pressure on them, they'll snap, and as I feel them, there are some slight bumps and dimples in them. I also sometimes get the same problem on my shins.
Could these be symptoms of bone cancer?

It could be a lot of things, or it could be nothing. The only way you can make sure is see your doctor and have x-rays and other tests done.

Put your mind at rest - make an appointment TODAY.

No expert here, but cancer is not likely to manifest in a perfectly symmetrical way (both arms, same spot on each) like this.
You might have bone strength issues, or something else, so you should get this checked out.

Good luck!

There are issues which could make it illuminate different than maximum cancers. A test is habitual formerly surgical treatment of this variety after maximum cancers. Why grew to become into is immediately concept she had bone maximum cancers from in basic terms test consequences? it could look her medical doctors have been leaping the gun in the event that they concept that, or grew to become into it that the kinfolk or your pal had that working by way of their minds, which could be commonly used to be frightened of as quickly as you have maximum cancers? Inconclusive would not recommend that they are in a position to't ascertain if it particularly is maximum cancers or not, inconclusive ability the main cancers Markers for her maximum cancers and bone maximum cancers weren't useful -- that's an extremely stable factor, in basic terms like her kinfolk is, rightlfully, taking it as. The biopsy confirmed this. so some distance as lighting fixtures up a test, something from inflamation to scar tissue can illuminate a test. Your pal's healthcare expert knew a test on my own in not trustworthy for analysis applications and did the biopsies to rule out maximum cancers. instinct isn't stable, surprisingly whilst it particularly is not the main cancers affected person's instinct.

Symptoms of bone cancer tend to develop slowly. They depend on the type, location, and size of the tumor. Pain is the most frequent symptom of bone cancer. Sometimes a firm, slightly tender lump on the bone can be felt through the skin. In some cases, bone cancer interferes with normal movements. Bone cancer can also cause bones to break. These symptoms are not sure signs of cancer. They may also be caused by other, less serious problems. Individuals who are experiencing symptoms should consult a doctor. §

Doubt seriously if it's cancer. Sounds like shin splints and a similar condition in your arms. Check with a doctor and get some lab work done.
