Skin Cancer With Bone Metastasis

Hi! I am currently having non-melanoma skin cancer stage 2.

I just had my mri result showing that there is something in the bone at the neck next to the spinal. I do have a slight pain in that area.

X-ray, blood test and bone scan is done. According to the bone scan there is a hot spot in that area. I am suspected to have bone metastasis and my cancer has advanced to stage 4. Open biopsy is not possible.

I tried searching on the net for more information. But there isn't. Is it really possible for non-melanoma skin cancer stage 2 to get bone metastisis? If it isn't what could be it?

Does anyone know anything about this?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
It is not possible for non melanoma stage 2 cancer to have bone mets.
It could be inflammatory lesion or incidental finding.
I would suggest you to take simple analgesics of NSAID class to settle the issue.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
