Let me start by saying I have not been diagnosed with cancer, however, there is a possibility.
Normal in position and size, measuring 10.7 cm in legth, No dilation or thickening of the collecting system is present. A complex (containing both solid and cystic elements) predominately cystic 1.2cm x 1.1cm x 1.2 c. mass is present in the lateral aspect at the junction of the interpolar region and the inferior pole of the right kidney, in the location where the hypodense mass was seen on CE. It demonstrates slight wall irregularity and an echogenic focus posteriorly, which measures approximately 4mm. I do not see an associated peripheral mass. Corticomedullary junctions are definable and renal cortical echogenicity is normal.
In the exam room that day, he noticed for the first time I had swollen neck glands, more so on the right but got distracted as we were interupted to go get chest xrays done. Could there be a connection? And, further in the report he categorizes this as a Bosniak 2 lesion and to follow up in 3 months with another Ultra Sound. Why so soon if these things grow so slowly?
