kidney-complex cyst & unidentified mass

We go to see the consultant next Thursday for results. It's my mom, she's 76. She had a scan in dec 2009 which showed a complex cyst and unidentified mass. She's just had an ultrasound last week and gets the results next thursday. She only told me about this yesterday. I don't even think she understood what it meant. I got back from her place tonight and I've been googling like mad. Nothing I've read/found gives me any hope. The 'mass' is likely to be a cancerous tumour. The complex cyst can become one. I think she's going to die. She's 76 so they can't/won't operate. I'm just typing this crying. I know no one can tell me anything specific. Like I said we see the consultant next thursday. I just needed to type it out - say what I'm thinking. Can anyone tell me there is even the possibility this isn't as bad as I think it is ?
