Hi guys, my mum was diagnosed with bone cancer (spread from breast cancer) a little over a year ago, she's been doing pretty well (considering they only gave her 3 months to live at the time!) but lately she's been having more pain in her bones where they know the cancer has 'hotspots'. Now, my aunt is a nurse and took her to get blood tests done to see if her cancer markers had risen any etc, and the doctor says her blood work is pretty much the same. Which I would find comforting, but my aunt says that doesn't necessarily mean the cancer hasn't spread (her husband died from similar cancer so she says she is talking from experience). So basically, I'm just wondering if any of you guys have heard of cancer getting worse without the specific markers, blood tests etc, changing much?

Thanks alot for any help!

My husband has Stage IV "base of tongue" cancer and his blood work has been normal all along.
