Not to say that you shouldn't be worried but I worked in an Xray deptartment and a lot of times we would call people back for ultrasounds because the radiologist wanted a better look to make a completely accurate diagnosis. A very common call back was people who had had ctscans and the doc had seen something ( a cyst ) on their kidney. My uncle just had this not too long ago. It was a cyst but was not anything harmful. They left it alone. A lot of these turned out this way. I'm not telling you yours will turn out this way just thought it might help to know that in my hospital atleast, it was a very common thing. I would be worried too though. Hope it all turns out okay!

I wouldn't worry about it until your doc gives you some cause for concern, as said above its a fairly common thing to see. It might also just be an artifact from the filming process or whatever..

So sorry you have to feel stressed as you wait for results. I think the anxiety about the unknown is so hard, and with our medical system, they often leave you waiting and worrying far to long. Try to focus on relaxing things and not jump to conclusions. (easier said than done!) My mom has lung cancer, and she recently had a suspicious CT scan that made it look like the cancer had metastasised to her rectum. It turned out to be absolutely nothing, but she was a complete basket case until the took the tests to find out. Hope everything is ok. Stay peaceful and keep us posted
