I recently had a CT scan and they found a 2 cintemeter spot on my left kidney, The reason for the test was pain i was having in my lower right side and lower left, like a pulled muscle feeling that lasted for several months and hasnt gone away. Well now they are sending me to a doc in St louis for a biopsy. Iam scared to death this is all i know, Can u inform me on more of what is going to happen. I still have the pain only when i turn over at night are on my feet a long time it feels like my guts are going to fall out. seriously. Can u help
I was going over the forum and noted that I had not addressed your question. You may well have had your procedure by now.
I doubt that your pain is from the kidney. If there is to be a biopsy (and this is not done frequently for this type of problem) then the physician will most likely anesthetize an area in your back/side over the kidney with an injection of medicine such as you would get at the dentist's office and then introduce a biopsy needle while using x-ray or ultrasound to guide the needle to the proper spot and take a sample of the tissue. The major immediate concern will be bleeding from the kidney. Afterwards you will most likely be advised to take it easy for a few days while the pathologist examines the tissue in an attempt to establish a diagnosis.
Hope that everything works out well for you.
