Hi Michelle,

I’m not a huge fan of bone biopsies because of the complications and because you can usually tell from a X-ray. If you haven’t had the X-ray sent to a radiologist that would be a good option. A lot of times if there is uncertainty another option is to repeat the X-ray in a month to see if the lesion has gotten worse or not. If it is cancer usually it is worse then. I think getting a second opinion is an excellent idea.

Hopefully it is not cancer.

You may have already read this but here is my article on diet for cancer.
