I m a cancer patient who has been cancer free for 3 yrs. I ve had a ton of back problems but nobody listens to me. I did have CT scan that said: On image 30 of series 2, there is a stable mixed lesion involving the T9 vertebral body with expansion of the lamina and left transverse process contain both lytic and thickened trabeculation and also expansion of the left transverse process. And another that mentions Sclerotic Lesions. Should I be concerned?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
You didnt mention what kind of cancer did you have,but thos doesnt sound good. It can be the worst (metastasis) but some other bones disorders may be considered such as spondilitis or primary vertebral tumours. MRI would show it better but this finding should be seen by oncologist and neurosurgeon. I wish you good health and good luck.
