solid mass in left hemi diaphragm

I am a 35 year old female in good health. Having a C/T done for another reason the physicians detected a mass in my left diaphragm. I went back for an MRI. I was told they do not know what the mass is. It is non specific, solid, soft tissue mass not consistent with a cyst,fatty tumor,vascular tumor, or adrenal mass. The mass measures 4.7cm by 1.7cm. I'm told I need to return every 3-6 months to have MRI's done. I feel I need more info because I'm very nervous. If anyone could help me I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.

Re: solid mass in left hemi diaphragm

I wouldn't be too worried , as these people see this stuff all the time and if they were the least bit susipicous of it they would not let you wait for 3 to 6 months for more tests..with that said its always a good idea to get a 2nd opinion so bring you films to another specialist for review.

Did they try to check to see if it was a fungal infection? Doctors don't seem to know enough about these. I would inquire.
