GOOD EVENING ALL.
I AM A 32 YEAROLD FEMALE AND YESTERDAY I HEARD FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT DREADED WORD TUMOUR.
LET ME TAKE YOU BACK 4 WEEKS AGO.... I woke up in the morning as normal and went to the toilet. As I have done for many years really suffered with a stiff and sore back until I have emptied my bladder. Noticed blood on the toilet paper...I thought oh ive started my period. Only ive had a hysterectomy four years ago. Panic set in. Looked in the toilet and all fresh thick blood. And alot of it. It seem to just be trickling out. I managed to catch it and sat in the urgent care centre to be told I had a UTI. I was treated with a weeks course of antibiotics but the bleeding first thing in the morning hadn't stopped. (I had no other symptoms of a UTI no pain or unwell feeling).
Back to the GPS once a week for the next three weeks again with blood. No infection but blood in urine. They rushed me in for an ultrasound as I have previously has a kidney stone (left kidney).
Fast forward to yesterday.. my results indicated that I have a probable begnine Angiomyolipoma but unclear will require further imagery. It also indicated that I also have a dromedary hump with possible underlying renal mass. 2ww referal sent to urologist. Safe to say I am so worried.
I have googled and googled but not finding much on either based within the Uk. There is lots of information on Tubular sclerosis that goes in par with angiomyolipoma but I do not have any other characteristics of that illness.
Is there anyone else my age and female been through this similar regarding the right kidney??
