Charlie, I just discovered this site while trying to find answers to my problems, which are almost identical to UCWife's however my mass was found randomly due to an ER visit for kidney stones, in July. My tumor is 7CM and I am having surgery next week to have it removed. I wanted to say thank you for your posts because even though all stories are not the same the similarities are huge and right now I feel like I need some support outside of my personal connections. Your posts are giving me some of the support I need, I already "know" everything you have said but just having someone say it again is assurance that I am doing things right. I know my husband is struggling with my illness too but he is trying really hard to not show it so I feel the need to be his rock too yet deep down inside I am not feeling so great about this. I won't find out if its benign or malignant until I wake up from the surgery and see what kind of scar I have so I am a little freaked out by that. Sorry for venting but I just feel like everyone around me is tired of hearing me complain about feeling sick. I wish you and your wife the best, continued healing for her and many more years together.View Thread
several months ago I started suffering from kidney stones on my left side, now I have been diagnosed with a 7CM mass on my left ovary. Is it possible that the tumor is somehow connected to me getting kidney stones?View Thread
