If the bone scan is inconclusive- What to do?
My uncle who has prostate cancer had a bone scan that was not conclusive and could not tell us clearly whether he has metastatic disease in his bones or not. Are there any other imaging tests that can help us determine if he has cancer in his bones? Is it really important to have an earlier, more accurate diagnosis of any bone disease or are we just overly anxious about the possibility of progression of PC into the bone?
