Yes and no. I have around 30 tumors that started in bones. I still haven't figured it out yet. For example for several weeks I would have a really bad sharp pain on my left rib the size of a quarter . It would come and go and really hurt. But the regular scheduled pet showed all those tumors were shrinking. Another I was just walking fine and all the sudden at the snap of your fingers I suddenly have massive pain about the size of a dime in my left lower leg. I could hardly make it back home. This continued off and on for weeks. Finally got radiation it was a tiny tumor he called it. The marks they had on my leg from their ct scan was the exact spot of pain. In the beginning I would have the worst back pains you can imagine. For about 2 months they would come and go but never really leave. I think now that was the bone tumors happening although the docs were misdiagnosing as muscle pains.
