Left testicle pain, left side abdominal pain, bed soaking night sweats, gastroparesis, 30lbs weight losss in the last 5 weeks, diarrhea, worn out tired, nauseated.

My GI doc today asked me what they were doing about the 1cm solid lesion on my kidney. I didn't know about it. He said when I was in the hospital last month they found it on an ultrasound and should have told me and scheduled a follow up on it. They didn't.

He wouldn't say anything more until the ultrasound followup next month and said that I'd be getting a needle stuck in me to check it.

Is a solid lesion on the kidney as bad as it sounds? He put me on Nurotin for the pain. It's a non narcotic, non habit forming pain med. It works pretty good. Does this sound like cancer?
