?renal mass on echo: 58F from LA notes:Ultrasound showed right kidney cortex demonstrates slight increase in echogenicity, measuring 6.7x3.0x3.7 cm in longitudinal. no right hydronephrosis,?ANS: Need to know why the ultrasound was done. Sounds like a renal cyst but CT better to followup on. I specialize in these problems so can do 2nd opinion if desired.
