Piece of mind

Postby dw9509 » Thu Jan 04, 2018 4:31 pm

Hi, I had melanoma removed in August, since they have found a lesion on femoral neck and Bosniak type IIF renal cyst. My doctor said he will wait a year for follow up. Is this ok based on having had melanoma? Or should I push for further investigation? I’m worried that if I wait a year that these lesions will have grown or progressed. Just looking for a little advice.
Thank you.

For peace of mind I would get another opinion. I am not educated in what you describe but certainly another expert opinion would be prudent. Where are you located?
