What are the chances that cancer cells from a 2.5 centimeter mass has spread. Saw orthopedic doctor today due to pain in my left shoulder. A bone scan years ago when I had prostate cancer showed that both shoulders were deteriorating due to arthritis. The shoulder was X-rayed today, and doctor saw something he didn't like so her ordered MRI. He said spot of concern could be an old cyst.

    Two chances

    Rudy,

     

    At 2.5 cm there are 2 chances the Kidney Cancer has already spread to your spine. Slim and mone.

    Probably nothing, but check it out.

    Very very low

    Unless you had a very agressive RCC grade/features/subtype.

    Most likely nothing...  We

    Most likely nothing...  We all tend to get a bit over sensitive to every little ache or pain, once we have heard those ugly words.. "you have Cancer".  I have had some persistent back pains... scans showed nothing.. just my normal bad back.. but it sure scared me.   It is not likely anything grew that fast anyway..

    Good Lucl.!
