having suffered from back pain for 6 weeks my mum was reffered for blood tests and a bone scan due to a history (10 years ago) of breast cancer. The blood tests were all normal except for a high inflamatory marker of 25. The scan results have now returned with a positive result for tumours in the abdomen. Does the relatively low inflamatory marker mean that the tumours have been caught early?

  • It by no stretch means that it was caught early, the tumours may have spread rapidly undettected by the tests
