Re: what is mass in kidney
Hi, I had a similar mass on my left kidney discovered without any symptoms. What did the CT or MRI radiology report say? Based on the image, they usually can say if it is benign or cancer. Mine was 'indeterminate', so I got a biopsy which confirmed it was kidney cancer. If the radiologist says it is benign, you should still have it monitored with imaging to be sure it does not grow. If it is indeterminate, you need a biopsy to be sure. If it is cancerous, you need to have it removed while it is still small. There is a good chance that it will not return if you get it out early.
Get copies of your radiology reports and read them carefully. Get a good urologist who handles lots of kidney cancer.
