Depends on the cause: Hydronephrosis is a symptom (fluid in the kidney and or ureter) not a disease. Treatment depends on discovering its underlying cause. Potential causes include: obstruction from stones, clots, or tumors, infection, reflux, excess fluid ingestion or excretion, among many others. See your urologist.
