ct scan confirm large mass 9.3cm in the left lower kidney. displays inhomogeneous enhancement post contrast administration there is internal vascularity noted within the tumour & there appears to be area of cystic degeneration. No invasion of the surrounding spleen or bowel. Liver pancreas adrenal glands appear normal. No filing defect in th renal vein to suggest a bland or tumpur thrombus.lymp nodes are normal visualised lung bases are clear, no sclerotic or lytic osseous abnormality. The tumour is confined to the kidney. the appearance are highly likely of renal cell carcinoma. there is presence of internal calcification does raise the possibilty of a leiomyoma/leiomyosarcoma
Please help me out I have read slot of stuff online, my urologist assured me I will be fine.
