Cancer or What?

Here are what the MRI I have had done stated,  some feedback would be appreciated.

Here is what the MRI Findings stated.

"There is a 5.8 cm mass extending posterior aspect of the left kidney with a 1.3 cm thick wall that is enhancing with a liquefied center.  The inner aspect of the thickened wall is rather nodular and irregular in appearance.  Remainder of left kidney is unremarkable,  right kidney is unremarkable. "

Here is what the MRI Impression stated.

"A 5.8 cm mass extending posterior aspect of the left kidney, most consistent with carcinoma with central necrosis; less likely possibly a renal abscess although would expect surrounding secondary fat changes and there would be clinical correlation for abscess if this was the case."  

What is most likely?

A carcinoma. Your doctor schedule a biopsy yet? central necrosis means its not getting blood to the center, which can release poisons into your system.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In medicine, carcinoma is any cancer that arises from epithelial cells. It is malignant by definition: carcinomas invade surrounding tissues and organs, and may spread to lymph nodes and distal sites (metastasis). Carcinoma in situ (CIS) is a pre-malignant condition, in which cytological signs of malignancy are present, but there is no histological evidence of invasion through the epithelial basement membrane.
