I am a Breast Cancer Survivor, stage IIA. I ended my chemo in 2005. I also have some heart damage. I mention this because I have been having leg pain in my left leg. Dull ache in my calf, shoot over to my shin and my knee. Sometimes its isolated to my shin. My treatme was dose dense ACT, which can have Neuropathy, and then of course there is PVD as a result of a heart that does not pump as it should. Thrombosis has been ruled out as of my ultrasound of the calf. In my research, one of the symptoms of bone cancer is kidney stones due to the excess calcium. In 3 years I have had KS 4 times. I also had a salivary gland blockage that is the same type of occurance as a kidney stone. I have on occassion run a temp of 99.3-100 for no reason. These 2 things have made me nervous. Anybody have any feedback? I am of course going to my Oncologist, and she said she would do a bone scan if I wanted to. She told me that bone cancer rarely presents itself initially with pain, but everything I read says the opposite!

I'm a breast cancer, skin cancer and womb cancer survivor - all primaries
I was diagnosed with bone cancer in my knee this week. Don't know if its primary or secondary yet; biopsy to follow. So rare either way for woman of 50, I have oncologist and surgeon stumped until we find out more.
Presented itself as acute back pain - yet nothing in my back, then right shoulder and upper arm aches and pains, nothing particular in my left knee !!
Get the nuclear bone scan; that's where it was picked up!
