I stumbled upon this page while doing internet research on the condition I was diagnosed with last week. I never, ever thought I would hear the words "you have a 2cm mass on your kidney that we think is cancer and we'll need to remove it," in my life. To say I am scared is the understatement of the century.
I maintain a calm demeanor and tell everyone I am fine when they ask, but inside I am going crazy. The thought of surgery is intimidating.
Reading through some of the other threads has been so amazingly therapeutic. I don't feel alone anymore.
Until my surgery on 9/12, I know I am going to be stressing harder each day. Any advice on how to focus on something other than the mass on my right kidney?
