I have been having alot of problem with my kidney lately. well i went to the doctor and they did some test. one of the test they did was a cat scan to see what my kidney looked like and he said there are some white patches on my right kidney. so i have to go in friday so they can cut a pice of the white crap out to see what it is. im am going crazy. my grandpa had the same problem last year and he had cancer. im so worried that i have got caner now to. it runs in our family. im could get it from both sides. my mom grandma and aunt had breast cancer and then on my dads side it seems like everyone got kidney cancer and lung cancer. and before i get bashed i know that you can not get cancer from someone else. im just freaking out because now i might have the same thing that is killing my grandpa. it sucks.

I'm sorry you are dealing with this. Hopefully it won't be as bad as you are imagining. The not knowing must be terrible for you.

 Just keep yourself busy. It is really hard when you only get half the picture. Last year I had an issue with excessive bleeding during my period (which lasted all of maybe 3 days a month). After about 3 months I went to my doctor. She ran some tests, and called me that Saturday. She told me she had an appt for me on Monday with a specialist. I said what kind of specialist. She told me she deals with oncology, and womens issue. I said so do you think I have Cancer. She said yes we are 90% sure you have it. All weekend I cried. I went to see the specialist on Monday. She asked that I bring my husband. She sat us both down and told us that there was a 90% chance that I had cancer. She said if it is. With the size of the tumor I would have less then a 5% chance of making it through it. The tests came back that I had something that was cancerous. They did another ultra sound and MRI to get the position to start treatment. The doctor called me that night. She said the tumor has completely disappeared. So even if you do have cancer miracles happen. She tells everyone I am her miracle patient. They have no idea what happened or how it happened. I do go yearly for my pap, and she does it. She told me it may come back, but she is not thinking it will, because things like that don't usually happen.

I hope all the tests come out, but remember miracles do happen.
