I am in my sixties and have an angiomyolipoma 6½ cms on my kidney. I have had numerous ultra sounds and CTs since it was diagnosed 1½ years ago. This week I went into hospital for embolization but at the last moment they decided not to do it because on the ultra sound that was taken then and a previous CT (from a year ago) it appeared that there was a higher lipid (fat)
involvement than arterial (blood). The doctor said that there was more of a risk doing the procedure than leaving it alone at present. Could this be an acceptable method of management. I would appreciate any comments/advice regarding this condition.
