bone cancer

My Brother is 52 years old and had rectal cancer in 2005. He now has complained of his left left aching so bad at night he can't sleep. He hasn't injured hisself, so I was wondering could it be bone cancer? He did not have any chemo or radiation after his surgery of rectal cancer.

Re: bone cancer

Could metastasis from the cancer which has invaded the bone. Insist on a bone scan.
