Question pericardial mass

Hello all
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

god has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
