| | Huge Kidney Cyst
In 2007 a scan for something other than my kidney revealed a "small" cyst. Today I got results that show the cyst is 10.9 cm and in 2007 it was 8 cm. It seems that this is not "small" like the original dr. stated. Now I am worried about cancer, and wondering if the daily diarhea problems I have after eating lunch and the horrendous pain I have just below my sternum an average of 3 times per month could be related to this large (coke can) size cyst. Could it be affecting my digestive system, other organs, etc. Any ideas of what tests need to be done, surgery, etc. I do have an appt. with a urologist but not for another 2 weeks. Thanks for any comments/help!
