I am 31 years old male. In Dec 2004, I had burning sensation while urinating. On urine test, microscopic hematuria was found. A string of tests were done including CT scan of abdomen without contrast and everything came out normal.
Now, as a part of follow-up, a MRI was done (different hospital this time) and the radiologist reports that there appears to be partial enhancement of the lesion which would be concerning for renal cell carcinoma.
Also, within a span of 5 months, the cyst has increased in size from 3 CM to 3.8 CM
Is there anyone out there with similar radiology readings. While my urologist and radiologist are still discussing, I would like to know my chances.
What are the chances that this is RCC and if yes, what is the prognosis. I still have microscopic hematuria (on and off).
Any input would be appreciated.
