    Decision Point (Should I go through those tests again?)

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): I had bilateral breast removal in 2009. In 2012 a PET scan and bone scan showed a tumor in the left femur. I then had an MRI and a biopsy of the femur, which showed one cancer cell.. I was expecting my doctor to arrange radiation treatments, but instead ordered another PET scan and bone scan, as well as monthly IV treatments to strenghten the bone.
    I was very upset about going through those tests again. I didn't feel that I needed them.

    Decision Point (Other): I have already had a PET scan, Bone scan, MRI, and biopsy. The biopsy showed one cancer cell. Now my doctor wants another PET scan and bone scan, plus a monthly IV to strenghten the bone.
    I thought I was ready for radiation treatments, but now I'm leary of doing all rhese tests again. Do I need them?
