So, my 44-year old DH went in for a chest x-ray due to recurrent (4+ mos) cough on Thursday. They scheduled a follow-up chest CT on Friday due to some minor atelectasis. Chest CT showed no cancer in the lung but showed a grapefruit sized mass in the vicinity of his kidney and adrenal gland. Dr. said that the mass was smooth and had clear edges and recommended a follow-up abdominal and pelvic CT scan with contrast for Monday afternoon. Dr. and radiologist said def. not fatty tumor and def. not a cyst.
I know I'm not supposed to get ahead of myself here, but it's hard not to. We have a 15 month old daughter and a son due on October 27. And he is the love of my life. I'm so scared.
