Brief Answer: Not due to cancer. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for writing again. Bone arrow edema is due to inflammation in the area. This will subside with anti inflammatory medicines. This is not suggestive of cancer. Hope my answer is helpful. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health. Regards
