I just went for my 6 month CT scan and another tumor the size of a quarter was found in my left kidney, very close to where the one I had removed was located. My doctor gave me 3 options. 1) biopsy, which he said is only 50% accurate. 2) surgery to remove it, which would be an open surgery since last one was laproscopic and there would be a lot of scar tissue. 3) wait 4 to 6 mo.have another ct scan to see if it grows or changes.
In case you cant see my previous posts, I had a tumor the same size removed from left kidney using laproscopic surgery and it was benign. I also had a complicated cyst removed with open surgery and it was benign. Both surgeries the past summer.
Any advice or experience with this?
