My ultrasound report says that there appears ti be a mass with mixed echogenicity near the pouch of douglas, measuring 8.8cm x 5.8 cm x 7.8 cm.

You definitely dont want to have a possible renal mass. You might need more imaging. Most renal imaging needs contrast - as your radiologist *who is me. ...Read more
