Posted on Tue, 8 Aug 2017 in Cancer
Question: I had a mastectomy in 2014. Cancer stage 2. Did not spread into organs. Attached is a report from a nuc med test. Should i be concerned about the result of the skull if cancer spread there.

Brief Answer:
Hello. An mri of head will resolve the issue.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the details. So there is a suspicion of increased activity in skull and this can be cleared after an mri of skull, although it looks unlikely.
Thanks and regards
