Likely kidney stones: The findings you describe are commonly seen with kidney stones. Occasionally, the same findings can be from a calcium in a vessel or within the tissue of the kidney.

I have few calculi in upper and mild calyx largest measuring 5mm at right kidney. calculus measuring 4mm in left kidney. Along with left minimal hydroureteronephrosis with dilated entire left uretre.
See urologist: Your calculi seem not large enough for lithotripsy. These may pass on their own. The passage may be facilitated by placing a stent. It would be prudent to consult a urologist for proper treatment. Left untreated, even stones, this small, can damage the kidney. Drink enough water every day so that your urine is mostly colorless. ...Read more

Kub ultrasound finding of anechoic focus at the middle pole measuring 1.5x1.5cm, left kidney. Minimal pelvocaliectasia right kidney.What treatment?
Probably benign: A description of an anechoic focus in the kidney typically refers to a cyst or a cystic lesion. Minimal pelvocaliectasis typically refers to very mild dilatation of the pelvis & calyces which is where urine drained into before it flow out into the ureter. These findings do not sound concerning as pelvocaliectasis may occur when you have a full bladder. Please check with your doctor to be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Echogenic calculus of size 3mm noted in lower calyx. echogenic calculus of size 5mm noted in the mid ureter.
Taking drotin DS now. Is surgery required?
Not necessarily: Surgery, usually endoscopic (using "scopes"), is only needed if stone is causing pain, too big to pass (usually >or= to 5 mm), or associated with blockage of ureter(blocking flow of urine) or associated urine infection. Most likely if stone is free in calyx it will pass on its own. If attached it may or may not cause symptoms. If no sxs may watch. Follow up with primary MD and/ or urologist. ...Read more

Prob. not.: All those items seems relatively benign, ie, not important. If it associated with abnormal labwork, or significant symptoms, then a PET scan may be more useful to identify active disease. If this is the first time the lung nodules have been seen, then a follow up CT in 3-4 months would be recommended. ...Read more

Nonspecific: The kidney measurement is relatively normal and is essentially just given for reference.

Without seeing the images or knowing if you've had other imaging, it's hard to give much more information. ...Read more

Question? Diagnosis?: Not sure of your question, but I surmise you want a diagnosis (you want to know what this IS). Without symptoms & physical exam (pictures), it is impossible to know. Even knowing symptoms & appearance, sometimes the ultrasound is not definitive enough to give a diagnosis. See a surgeon for a biopsy; this may be a lipoma (benign fatty growth) or a lymphoma (benign or malignant, both types exist). ...Read more
