We are Macmillan. Cancer Support
Hi Lou, I very much agree with Crutons advice and would simply like to say that I'm thinking of you at this stressful time. I hope your appointment comes through quickly and try to stay positive and focused in the meantime. Please let us know how you get on.
Hope you are well. My mum has recently gone through something similar which I posted about here: http://community.macmillan.org.uk/cancer_types/kidney-cancer/f/78/p/61839/605334.aspx#605334
All I can say is keep your head up and have faith that it will all work out. I think doing research is sometimes worrying because you come up with lots of different scenarios but it is good to have questions for the doctors so they can remove any doubt from your mind.
It was really helpful for my mum and I to read a lot about cysts and what doctors work within these areas so we were well aware of what they were talking about. One thing I would say is you have to push for answers sometimes so you are at peace about what is happening in your body. It is understandably a scary time.
What hospital did you visit? My mum was at Northwick Park and Central Middlesex.
just remember you may be having pain because of the location of the cyst but it may not be serious. a lot of people have cysts which cause pain but are benign.
I hope the mass is not serious and please do update us on how you are getting on.
If you have any questions about Macmillan we would love to hear from you
