In my novel, my protagonist was diagnosed with bone cancer. I already researched the symptoms for it and all that jazz, but I'm stuck on how to word the doctor testing her for bone cancer. How do doctors generally test for cancer, but more specifically, bone cancer?





Thanks!

There's more than 1 type of bone cancer. I was referred for more tests after they saw my xrays.
