    I would make appointment with your gp and ask questions.who are you going to see and why.

    you could have gallstones.

    My husband had his gallbladder removed last year with keyhole surgery and came home the same day.

    please try not to don't worry,

    if you can't get appointment speak to someone st the surgery who can help.

    hope you find some answers

    no doesn't mean you have cancer, did they ask you to bring someone with you? If the cyst doesn't have a blood supply (and maybe they could not make this out with what they saw) you are fine, absolutely fine so just go and see what they say and don't worry.

      i am not sure about a blood supply to the cyst, maybe this can be picked up when i have my MRI which i am quite eager to have as i hear they can see a lot with this test.

    I saw my GP this morning to discuss the letter i got yesterday.  She said that she (as a GP is not the expert) so she thinks the appointment is for the consultant to say that they have found this cyst by chance and that they probably want to keep an eye on it.  My appointment has been set for the end of June but after reading the letter over again it states the following:-

    "Your appointment is provisional until you hear from the hospital to confirm your appointment details.  At the time of arranging your appointment the hospital consultant has not received a referral letter from your GP.  The referral letter contains details of why your GP thinks you need to be seen at the hospital.  The referall letter must be reviewed to ensure that your appointment is in a suitable clinic and within a timeframe that is appropriate for your clinical condition"

    what does this mean exactly?

      She did reassure me for a while but then i start to doubt everything again.  I'm sure she wouldn't lie but she did say that if cancer was thought of then she said she would have sent me straight to hospital.  I can't help worrying about all this at the moment and will be glad in a way once i've seen the consultant and got it all out the way.  I know someone at work had a scan and she was told there and then to see her GP right away so i am aware that any urgency is dealt with straight away but i can't help worrying.

      Try not to worry , enjoy today and try to put it to the back of your mind untill your appointent. At the hospital they will tell you if you need surgery or monitor it.

    Since i last posted i have had loads of blood tests including liver function tests and lots of others and all have come back OK.  The next stage now is that i am waiting to have an MRI scan so that the cyst can be looked at in more detail.  My GP has been brilliant in arranging all these blood tests for me.

      Glad your gp was really helpful, sometimes we complain about the NHS but they are very good.your gp was very quick with your blood tests and they don't show any abnormal so that looks good. You are in safe hands.

      The waiting is the worse.

      try not to worry.
