I went to the emergency room on March 15 2012 due to sever side pain, a doctor told me to wait and that he had some good drugs he could give me. After the five hours passed and me complaining I asked for some relief, and when the doctor came with the diagnoses, it was nothing I Thought it would be. He told me I was fine and the lab work was great, and discharged me from the hospital. Of course still suffering from the pain I went and pulled my medical records to find out I had a 2cm benign tumor, on my right adrenal gland. I later went to a kidney specialist and confirmed the tumor , MY pcp referred me to a endocrinologist, that recommended me to remove the tumor because it still is bothering me. I would have never known what caused the pain if I didn't pull my own medical records.
