I have been on here before and you've all been such great help! I really appreciate it. I had a small complex mass that was found on my kidney by accident and we were monitoring it. My GP wanted to repeat the US in another 3-6 months to check for growth. I requested that we push it out 6 months (February), since it is so small chances are super slim of it being malignant. Anyway, for the past couple of days my urine has been strange and I thought I saw blood in it. Well, while at an appointment with a client, I excused myself to use the facilities and what I saw was most definitely blood. I haven't any pain urinating. I do have the lower back pain again. I had it a while ago, but it went away (no blood in urine at that time)so I didn't think anything of it. No history of stones, I don't drink alcohol or soda, or caffeine to cause stones. No fever. What do you think? I know it's possibly cancer, but it's also possibly not. How did you discover yours?
