What does echogenic nodule in kidney mean?

Not a CYST

Kidney
A nodule in the kidney represents a mass which needs to be evaluated. IF it is a simple cyst then it can be assumed to be benign. An echogenic nodule is something other than a simple cyst and usually means it is solid and requires further evaluation, usually by CT.

Is a nodule in your kidney always kidney cancer? My sister has a small nodule in her kidney. Does this mean she has cancer?

Not always

Nodule
In addition to kidney cancer, there are a few types of benign (noncancerous) tumors that form a solid nodule in the kidney, such as angiomyolipoma or oncocytoma. Angiomyolipoma can often be diagnosed by imaging since it usually contains fat.

Could a slow growing nodule on my kidney be cancer? It has been slowly growing for the past 6 years. Should I have it removed? only 2.6 cm now

Maybe

Nodule
a growing nodule, even if slow growing, can be very serious. These are complex issues, and symptoms like these deserve a full evaluation in person by your health care provider.

Nodules around the kidney. What could it signify?

it depends...

Cyst
Nodules around the kidney could either be solid masses or cysts. Further imaging studies, like a CT scan, would be needed to fully investigate what these "nodules" are.

Does focal nodular hyperplasia happen in a 6 month period?Prev MRI shows nothing on the liver,recent MRI shows 3 lesions on the liver.Past kidney CA

Actually it can

FNH is actually a curious event that begins with something we don't understand in the central blood vessel of the lesion, no matter how big or small. I'd not be surprised. If the radiologist is confident, then I'd urge you to go about your life and not worry about kidney cancer having recurred here.

I have had kidney cancer in the past. An MRI reported fattyliver, 6 months ago. A recent MRI reported 3 lesions, possible focal nodular hyperplasia. Could it be cancer?

Unclear

Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) is the 2nd most common benign liver tumor after hemangioma. Distinction between FNH and other liver lesions such as hypervascular metastases (given your History) is critical to ensure proper treatment! MR imaging allows reliable distinction of FNH from other liver lesions in most cases. In addition the availability of prior MRI comparison exam is also very helpful.

Ct showed abnormalities on kidney and nodules on lungs what could this be?

CT abnormalities

Chest-lung
You need to see a doctor as soon as possible. Nodules on the lungs need to be biopsied. You may have a metastatic tumor in your lungs. Have your physician arrange for a CT-guided biopsy of one of them so tissue can be sent to a pathologist to see what they are. You may also need as well a CT of your kidneys as soon as possible to see if they are responsible for your lung nodules. Good luck.
