Bad news on CT scan

Yesterday the nurse called and gave me a report that everything was clear on the scan results but the doctor wanted to see me in 3 months and to have another CT scan because of a small spot that was probably a cyst. I got my report this morning...shows I have another mass in my remaining kidney plus a malignant neoplasm in the bone. I cannot believe she gave me a clear sign and then I read this! But, to not see the urologist until 3 months later. Are they crazy? I have left word for this nurse to call me back. I want a referral ASAP with an oncologist.

It says malignant neoplasm in bone on the report? That's a very unusual thing to dictate without prior bone biopsy or PET scan.

The CT scan report doesn't even give the dimensions of the kidney mass like it did for my first mass.
