O.K. I will try and make a long story short. Couple weeks ago I had a mri done on my kidneys. Came back as a complex cyst about 4.6 cm. Doctor said probably not cancer and will have another cat scan in about 6 months. I also have blood and the doctor said large volums of protein in my urine (reason for mri and scope). I'm a 38 year old male former smoker as of 2 months ago but I smoke for 20 years. Doctor has refered me to a nephrologist
Anyone have this? Should I be concerned or alarmed? What should I ask the doctor, etc. Any information or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
