Medical problems causing mental problems

Hi, I’m new here. I’m 41 and have been sz for 20 years. I’ve never been hospitalized but I tried so hard to not listen and refused to listen to the voices. Anyways, I recently learned I have a 9-10 mm mass on my kidney. I’m freaking out!!! I’m trying to get a doctor to do blood work, but my doctor is out of town. The specialist I’ve been seeing for other issues did an ultrasound one month ago, and I was just told today about the mass!!! I’m so upset!!! They ordered a ct, but no blood work!! I’ve had other masses, on my uterus, not cancerous! I feel like I shouldn’t be freaking out, but I’m balling my eyes out. I don’t want cancer!! I have two kids and my dad died from cancer when I was four! Help me not freak out!!

Did he tell you how early you caught it? Often if cancer is caught early enough you have a really good chance of treating it. Since you have your family to think of do all you can to get the best care possible! You can fight this!!

I think I’m jumping ahead. I haven’t had a diagnosis yet. Just told I have a mass. It’s just me thinking the what if.

My brain is on overload! I just freak out easily with medical stuff.

Don’t freak out and stay calm. Maybe it’s easy for me to say but things will get worse if you freak out. Anyway, I really hope the best for you and wish you to recover perfectly from this! Don’t hesitate to come back here if anything!

Oh well then try not to jump to conclusions. It’s not uncommon to develop benign tumors as one gets older. Hopefully it will be nothing. Sending well wishes!!


Thank you!!:bug:

Hey, sorry to hear this. Hopefully it’s benign. Is it just on one side? There are so many advances these days. It’ll probably be fine.
