Bone Cancer Home > Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma Diagnosis
If a person has possible malignant fibrous histiocytoma symptoms, the doctor will likely need to:
- Perform a physical exam
- Ask about the patient's personal and family medical history
- Recommend additional tests and procedures.
Other, less serious, health problems can cause symptoms similar to those seen with malignant fibrous histiocytoma. Therefore, diagnosing malignant fibrous histiocytoma may involve ruling out other possible causes of the symptoms.
Procedures and tests that doctors may use to make a malignant fibrous histiocytoma diagnosis include:
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
- Computed tomography (CT) scans
- Bone scans
- A biopsy.
