Kidney function: If a person's kidney is not functioning properly, one of the symptoms that can occur is generalized edema (or swelling) due to improper water balance regulation through a number of different of mechanisms (too complicated to discuss in this forum). I am not sure what you mean by the kidney having a hole (cysts?). There are simple blood tests to determine normal kidney function that can be done.
