I seem to jump from one thread to another.

I had a CT scan for Abdominal bulge........that came back negative, HOWEVER, I have A Renal Cyst/Mass (it's been called both).
Adrenal gland Adenoma....................sure don't like that name.

Now they want another CT with and without contrast (as was the last one!) and a Ultra Sound following Renal Cyst Protocol.

To say I am extremely worried that this will be 'more' than a cyst, is an understatement.
I am so uncomfortable and sore............can't handle clothing around my waist for long.............

I sure hope someone here can give me a scenerio, help, hope, what to expect and such.

Thanks so much........I'll be hanging out watching my email in hopes that someone here can shed some light for me!!

My husband has a renal cyst/mass as well. He cannot have an MRI, which, after a ct scan with and without contract and an ultra sound, all tests were inconclusive. An MRI should give the doc. the best diagnosis. Unlike my husband who could not have the MRI, he must have surgery to remove it. Robotic surgery here at Shands/Gainesville, fl by Dr. Li-Ming Su..........another journey for us. Good luck in your diagnosis !
