White spots on bone scan-pls help me

I had a full body bone scan this am. From what I saw I had tons of white spots on my hands. Does this mean I have cancer? I am terrified now and have not heard my results. Please offer me some feedback.

So what did you find out? White "hot" spots are typically where something is active, but also shows up blood too.

The report was sent to my Dr and he said it was fine-no issues (just a slight curve in my spine) He said there was nothing reported on my hands and he did not see anything either. So maybe it was just the screen shot I saw, maybe it was not filled in all the way?

Still having issues however...my last and final test will be for lyme

Sometimes the angle does produce glares. They definitely would have pushed for additional tests if anything was spotted.
Lyme sure is a tricky one - hopefully they can get a resolution for you soon.

Re: White spots on bone scan-pls help me

Did you find out anything about your white spots? I had a full body bone scan done Thursday and have hot heard the results. They did give me a copy of my images on a CD. I see quite a few white spots on my hands, backbone and shoulders. Can you
tell me what this means? It is a long holiday weekend and I will have to wait until next week .. probably Tuesday or Wednesday before my doctor will be in to explain.

Thank you.

Nope my dr said it was nothing, could have been the resolution on the screen...

What did you have a scan for?
