Spots in my bone show up on xray

I have had shoulder pain over the last 3 months, thinking I had a tear in my shoulder I went to the doctor. He took an xray to see if I had any bone abnormalities possibly causing burcitis. The xray showed 2 spots in the center of my bone up near the shoulder. He ordered a bone scan of my shoulder. What could these spots be?

Re: Spots in my bone show up on xray

Did the spots show up dark, or were they bright spots (more white than the rest of the bone)? If they are dark spots that would mean that the bone there is not as dense...Perhaps it could be something like a fluid filled cyst, or even a tumor...

Tumors could also show up as bright spots. It just depends on the type it is.

If you don't mind my asking, how old are you? Reason I ask is I'm a x-ray tech student, and a lot of times in older patients, its not uncommon to see some spots in the bones, which are just calcifications that come with age. Nothing dangerous.

also what size were the spots? Tiny specks or more like marble sized?
