The Dr.s found a 2.5cm complex cyst in my right kidney, and a 3.6cm complex cyst in my left kidney, and there are multiple small cysts around both complex cysts! I went to see a Urologist, and he ordered a Tiple Pulse scan, but before I had the TPS, he said he wanted to monitor the cysts every 6 months! I recieved a call 2 weeks ago, and I was told that the results from my TPS showed that the Cysts are alot worse than they looked in the original CT scan, and that the classification of the cysts have been classified much higher than he had classified them with the original CT scan! The doctor only had an open apointment for 3 months after the call! If I were to have Kidney Cancer, would the 3 month wait make a difference, or be dangerous if it is cancer?

Hi ponskypat-

Your concern about waiting to see the doctor is a good question.  Have you asked your doctor's office or medical team?  If they are unable to answer,  perhaps you can try "AskMD Anderson."  Here's a link:

Take care and keep in touch,
