Re: abdominal mass
honestly,that almost sounds impossibile. have YOU actually seen any of those test result reports for yourself and read thru them? i am only asking since many many docs(mostly specialists) do not always tell you everything that is actually in anyones report. they will tell you only what THEY feel is pertinent,not ALL the actual findings contained in them. just one possibility. it just would seem really really odd to have that many tests and NOTHING shows up but you can actually see this mass and feel it,ya know what i mean? "something" would HAVE to be in that area if you can see it and feel it. it would have to. i personally would just find it very very hard to believe given all that testing that 'nothing' was actually found,ya know?
i have had ALOT of the very same tests myself and knowing just what they actually pick up,it just doesn't seem 'right' to me either. have you just been seeing only one doc for all this ongoing testing and evaluation or have you been seeing another type of specialist as well? something just doesn't sound right.
at the very least,i do think you need to possibly seek out another opinion from a totally different doc. bring all the hard films,they would want them anyways. if you can actually feel it,and see it,something just has to be there.
the only other test option that i can think of off hand that may help you would be an ultrasound of that area? this could really be helpful in this type of situation too. just a good suggestion. this would also show,when they use the doppler tool,whether or not this mass actually has active bloodflow.
just exactly where is this mass located? the more exacting you can be the better. just where do you 'see it'? have they ran any blood/labwork on him at all? if so,is there anything that was out of the norm there? any info you can provide would really help me to try and help you. **
