Removing Tumor In Jaw Bone

i have a benign tumor in my jaw bone under left molar.

it seems to be causing the tingling i've been feeling in my chin since it's resting on a nerve.

i've had a cat scan and now the oral surgeon wants me to get a bone scan and then meet with a specialist in boston about surgery.

i am totally freaked out and would like to hear any advice/similar stories...

Bone Cancer Or Severe Bumblefoot

Paige foot


About 6 months ago one of my rats, Paige, was diagnosed with bone cancer. I brought her to the vet because her back foot/ankle was swollen. The vet, who regularly sees rats and has always been reliable, diagnosed her with bone cancer after taking an x-ray. At first she was unsure because it looked like the foot was completely shattered, but after researching it she gave me that diagnosis. Paige ...

Possible Shadow On X Ray


Last Wednesday I had two teeth extracted.  My dentist said she thought she saw a faint shadow on my x rays from last visit(I'd had a check up the previous week).  She said it could just be plaque build up, and she'd be able to get a better look after my hygiene visit in a couple of weeks.  She'd told me that the top of the tooth looked ok, and she couldn't see ...

Bone Cancer Remission

If you go into remission with bone cancer, what happens to the tumors already mastised in your bones?  Do they continue to grow, and do they grow slowly?

ANSWER: They may be dead or they may grow VERY slowly. If they grow normally you will not seem to be nor be in remission!

The stitches completely came out on the following Wednesday, and there seems to be a hole at the site where the bone graft was done. I observe some white build-up, and I can't really tell if they are ...

Scapular Fracture

My 14 year old son actually got a scapular fracture(body of scapula from lateral border horizontally about half-way, non-displaced). He was playing lacrosse and had just released the ball so his arm was straight out in front of his body when he was(illegally) checked by a player using the pole with his hands apart. The odd thing besides the fracture is that there has been no bruise. He is now 5 days post-injury. He has ...
