Sample it: You should have a urologist or interventional radiologist biopsy it if the origin is unclear. Solid masses of the kidney in your age group need to be sampled (biopsied) and/or removed, in most cases.

Kidney Mass: If you have a solid mass in your kidney, you need to see a urologist to see what it is. See one as soon as you can. Good luck.
