Hello everyone, I have been reading your supportive and valuable advice to other members for a few days now so have joined in the hope that you can help me understand what is happening to me at the moment. A quick background:
Had a us 2 years ago as I was getting pain under my front ribs left side, result came back normal although I peaked at my medical notes in Dec 13 and there was actually an angiomalipoma measuring 1cm on the left pole of my left kidney. Since that us I have been back and fore to my gp with the same pain but it was put down to muscular pain after blood tests were normal. I went back to my gp in Jan 14 with right sided rib pain so she arranged another us to check my gallbladder. I thought I would ask about the angiomalipoma as I was concerned about it and that I had had no follow ups. The radiologist noticed the lipoma and recommended a CT scan. I had the scan last Thursday and my gp called with the results to say that the properties of the lipoma had changed it now measures 1.2 cm by 1.9 cm no lymph node involvement and suspicious of primary malignancy.
So I am now waiting for an urgent appointment with a urologist which could take a few weeks. I have just turned 40 and have two lovely kids a very supportive husband and sister but I am feeling a bit scared and have never met anyone with experience of this. Does anyone have any info or advice.
