Ok so i had a Ultrasound that showed a 9mm cyst in my kidney. The doctors said not to worry they just want me to go back for another ultrasound to make sure it hasnt gotten any bigger. But of course i am worried. Has anyone ever been in a situation like this? Any info would help ALOT! Thanks so much

What you have is not uncommon and is usually benign, just needs to be watched as per your doctor.  I've had one for years, also one on the adrenal gland, and I get a CT once a year or so to monitor this.  The cysts are not cancer and don't turn into cancer.  The only problem with renal cysts is if you had a large number of them, polycystic kidney disease, kidney function might be decreased.
