I've had x-rays MRIs and bonescans of the affected area. Can a bone tumor look like a bone infection and vice versa?

  • Well sometime the image may look like an infection...but it must be coincidence... by the way i think that if it was an infection your doctor must have known it. Cause what i know about tumour and infection is differ in it's aspiration fluid, or maybe in blood tests...( if your doctor conduct the aspiration test, or blood tests )well it's just an info by the way. nice to help;)
