hi All,

My dads surgery was wed. All went well. removed it and froze the base. Said it was a chocolate cyst. 5% chance of it being cancerous. Has anyone heard of this type of cyst on the kidney.?I have heard it on ovary's but not the kidney. Any info would be great.

Hi Bill, I am glad the sugery went well!  I have heard of chocolate cyst's on ovaries, but not on the kidney.  It doesn't sound too bad though.  I thought i would start a conversation on Smart Patients and ask there.  Here is the link in case you want to follow!



All my best!

I have only heard of it in connection to endometriosis! But the main thing is this sounds like a good result! I am glad everything went so well for your Dad, I wish him well:)
