| | pericardial mass
I am sorry to read of so many losses at this board. I hope that some of you with experience might be able to help me.
I have a non productive cough that has been here for about 9 months. Doc put me on allergra and an inhaler and did a chest x-ray "just in case". She called and said the x-ray showed up a mass that might be a fat pad. and sent me for a cat scan. The cat scan showed a "pericardial mass, a small cyst,well not small" (her exact words) she said she didn't really know what to do with this info and sent me to a cardiologist. He did an echocardiogram and a holter monitor (I am also now having chest pain and palpatations) the echo results are back and it says normal heart function. Cardiologist says maybe we will wait a while and do another scan and see if it grows. Any thoughts on this from anyone? Thanks much
