I had a U/S done for frank blood in my urine on and off for 1 week (no other symptoms other than slight twinges on one side). An infection was R/O. The U/S showed a 5-7mm stone in each kidney, plus a 5mm mass (non-shadowing) in my right kidney. My urologist said it is not a stone, and need to do a CT of my kidney and a cystoscopy to R/O cancer. My appointment is in 4-1/2 weeks. Is this too long to wait...should I innsist on an earlier appointment? Everything I read says you should f/u ASAP.
