My mother has problem moving shoulder.

Asked for Female, 77 years

What does this mean from the x-ray report of my mom's shoulder? Sclerosis with a cortical breach is seen in the greater tuberosity of the left humerus. Soft tissue calcifications noted adjacent to the midshaft of the humerus. She is already a cancer patient.

Dear Patient,

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope she recovers completely. Can you tell me which cancer does she have and where is it located? Was her arms hurting? Why did you feel the need for an X-ray?
Your x-ray loosely means that there are unusual hardening and thickening of bone, the calcifications and hardening could be due to a number of causes but it's better you discuss this with your current oncologist. We wish her well.
