My friend had something like that and the next time they went in to go see it it was gone. I hope that is what happens in your case. I would say try not to stress about it but that is impossible. Just hope for the best!

Sorry to hear that, it must be a very difficult time for you right now. I've got a son 3 yrs and during an ultrasound we discovered he had a tumor on his adrenal gland, pushing on his kidney and worse his other kidney was a ball of cysts stuck in the bowel area and not functioning. It's hard to take that kind of news, I know. But the brighter side is that modern medicine is amazing, the things they can do now is mind boggling. You are probably in for a wild ride but have hope. And while on 1 of my many hospital stays with my son I met a lovely lady who's son was born with a brain tumor and he's doing fine age 4 now. Good Luck.

Sorry I haven't but I do know pregnancy speeds up the growth of such things, so it was probably why it wasn't picked up earlier. I'm sorry it must be a very difficult time for you and your family, good luck!
