Hi. I'm hoping someone nay be able to assist me. I've recently been diagnosed with angiomyolipoma in my left kidney. I'm waiting for my 1st hospital appt in February. So I'm wondering if anyone here knows anything about them and what treatment I could expect. Any information is more than I already have and that is only from what I've read via Google

As I noticed you haven't yet received a response to your post I thought I might stop by and welcome you to our forum, KellyMc.

I'm sorry to hear that you have been recently diagnosed with angiomyolipoma and I can appreciate why this might be worrying but as many of our members can tell, it might be a good idea not to google things as there are a lot of sources with unreliable information out there.

Hopefully, our members who can relate to your situation will come along shortly to say hello and give advice but in the meantime, if you use the search engine from the left hand side of the blue banner at the top of this page and insert 'angiomyolipoma' it will show up previous posts which you might find useful to read.

Best wishes,

Hi Kelly, I’ve just been diagnosed with one of these via ultrasound in my left kidney also, I’m a 35yo mummy of 2. I’m not sure if you’ll see this as it’s an old thread but if you have any updates knowledge on this it would be really good to know. I’m really worried and too scared to google.
