I had a robotic partial nephrectomy on July 5 2013. pathology showed renal cell carcinoma of the clear cell type and fuhrman grade 2. I just had my 3 month follow up with the doc today and he told me that my scan showed no signs of recurrence. (Yay!) When I got home, I read the report on the scan and it shows "a 1.2 cm cyst in the interpolar region of the right kidney" (the same kidney that had the cancer) Should I be concerned? The doctor didn't mention it in the office... an oversight? or nothing to worry about?
