What about osteosclerotic ill-defined lesions in the right and left femur, ilium and ischio-pubic ramus? could they be metastases from breast cancer?

Sumer Sethi said...

yes finally, they are secondaries from breast cancer. this is k/c/o of breast cancer...

DrAyushGoel said...

Ok sir got the answer.. the prosthesis took away our eyes from the mets ... :-P

so the history that was withheld must be some surgery (radical mastectomy) or something else related to breast cancer...

But sir apart from these mets , was the prosthesis also displaced?
