Tests and it's findings were a 6cm Exophytic kidney cyst on my left kidney. It started of being a simple cyst but the last two years it has grown to 6 cm at present day.
I have swelling on my abdomen where the cyst is on the upper pole. I am getting cosntant stabbing pains and dull ache which is there 24/7. I can not lie on that side anymore in bed.
I saw my gp the other day about the results, he read them out while I was there, all he said about the cyst was, that it is a simple kidney cyst. He didnt even say what size it was I am so angry with him. So will try and get a second opinion this week.
Am I right to chase this up as it is causing symptoms.
At what size do they turn into tumors or names?
