    Think if you read between the lines of your own message you deep down within yourself know that it is not cancer. I know you will struggle to believe that but i would ask the medical gp for reassurance if they can assist. Scared is a rough feeling to get to grips with but i know that you will be ok. Try telling yourself over and over that you will be fine it might work. But ill pray for you but i also believe deep down inside you know youll be fine.

    Hello Hun, calm down if you can, I've been there and know where you're coming from ok - remind yourself blood tests NORMAL, if you had cancer they would not show normal results, scans are procedure it's just how it works, you will be absoloutley fine try not to panic it will be allright - talk to any of us at any time, take some deep breaths and try to stay calm, your GP   Should be able to reassure you - this is what health anxiety does to us it makes us believe things that are NOT true.

    Hello Marla I am Kaye from Austalia... i am on this forum as i now suffer from anxiety and agoraphobia.  5 years ago now i was having a scan and they found a cyst on my right kidney. They did a biopsy and said it was cancer... PLEASE DONT PANIC .... I am still here to help you and my friend had the identicle thing and also on her right kidney as well at the same timesmile   They will want to remove it to be sure in case it is cancer. This was done through key hold surgery which is a blessing. The recovery is quicker and I was up and out of hospital on the 4th daysmile  The hardest part is the stage you are at now... going for biopsy tests and other appointments ... this is the hardest.. and that is because of the unknown factor for you.... I wish i could talk you through every step... now that i have done this i know it is not as scary as i thought it would be.... please feel free to ask any questions no matter how pesonal as they only removed 1/3 of my right kidney and i am no different for itsmile  Kind regards Kaye
