Hi i have recently been diagnosed with Crohns it has taken them from 2007 to find this out and are now on steroids and chrones meds and trying to get the right dose!Ive also been to see a urologist due to blood in my Urine, ive had a scan and it shows up that i have a 2inch fatty lump on my right kidney and advised to have it removed by putting a stent in via the blood vestal, ive had this lump a number of years and only now anything has been mentioned because of its size, I Also had a complete hysterectomy when i was 27 due to sever endemetriosis, and i also suffer with arthritis which is causing my endless pain and can not get out of bed without help because when i wake i feel as if my back is broken with the pain and its the pain that wakes me, could the pain im having be due to this lump or is it just the arthritis????
It seems that you have a angiomyolipoma, of your right kidney, which your doctors have advised to get treated with selective embolisation of the tumor.
Usually such tumors do not cause any symptoms unless they are very large and are about to rupture and bleed. The pain in such cases would be continuous, dull or throbbing type initially and worsen progressively until proper medical help is provided.
Pain due to arthritis increases with movement of the affected part and subsides on taking rest. Since your pain is only on waking up, it is more likely to be due to arthritis than due to the lump.
You might consult with your doctor who can help you to deal with the pain and provide proper treatment.
