im scared

I'm a really anxious person, i suffer from panic attacks so sometimes i convince myself silly things, i just need to put my mind at rest!
I was having kidney pains, so i went to the doctor and they took a urine sample and said i had a kidney infection, they gave me antibiotics but the pain didn't go, so they gave me a different lot of antibiotics, still didn't go. I've now been booked in for a kidney scan but as its coming up to christmas it won't be for a while, i feel like i shouldn't be waiting, everyday i think im not going to make it till the evening. My doctors dont really explain things to me as they know it will only make me panic. Is it possible to get kidney cancer and kidney infection confused in a urine sample?

Re: im scared

Kidney cancer doesn't show up in urine. Don't start to worry yet, there are ALOT of other small easy to fix things that could be wrong with you besides cancer.

Cancer is not going to show up as a kidney infection. Don't worry. You are in my prayers.
