Unknown diagnosis

I mentioned a mild discomfort to my doctor yesterday and the next thing I new I was getting an ultrasound. I don't have any swelling like some describe in this forum but I was told by the lady doing the ultrasound I have some fluid buildup around "Poncho" but not "Lefty".

I'm a little concerned and probably shouldn't bother you people but I like to be prepared should it come back positive. In general what am I looking for and what questions should I ask?

Signed Poncho and Lefty

I'd say just wait for the blood tests to come back bud. The ultrasounds help them determine some things but not everything. And if it does come back positive, it's not the end of the world. I'm a 3 year survivor. They've made so many strides. Sounds like you caught it early so thats always a good sign.
