Testicular exam: If your kidney stone has not dropped into your ureter, it is unlikely that this is the cause of your problem. Seek out a urologist to have a thorough exam of your scrotum and testes. He may suggest you undergo a scrotal/ testicular ultrasound. Possible diagnoses could be inflammation of testis or epididymis, hydrocele, hernia, or tumor. Don't let it go if it has been there for 6 months. ...Read more

I have a bit of pain in my left testicle, it's pain Like when it's touched or pressed gently, its not continuously paining, and I do have kidney stone.

See Doc timely...: A specific Dx couldn't be derived from what depicted. Tenderness at being touched/pressed suggests something inflamed inside; testicular pain may occur sometimes along a kidney stone passage through ureter to bladder; highly variable degree, duration, & interval of testicular pain may suggests torsion. So. collect the info and see Doc timely for analysis, physicals, and possible tests so to deduce ...Read more

I have kidney stone in mid calics. Due to that I have back pain and pain in testicles. But when I have sex this pain subsides. Pls suggest is it normal?

Normal: The brain's perception of pain is a complicated phenomenon. Endorphin response to sex likely suppresses your perception of pain, however, the act of having sex probably has no effect on the actual presence, movement, or associated inflammation of the stone. ...Read more

Left testicle llq pain radiates to left lower back pain. Had CT ruled out kidney stones. H/o Crohn's and colitis. What could this be.

Left testicle llq pain radiates to left lower back pain. Had CT ruled out kidney stones. H/o Crohn's and colitis. What could this be.

Unclear: Is the testicle tender and swollen? Possibility of inflammation of the testicle or epididymis needs to be considered. Sometimes, the testicle may intermittently twist on its' vascular pedicle and cause intermittent torsion with associated pain. Complete torsion can cut off the blood supply and result in loss of the testicle. If any of this sounds like you, get examined by a urologist. ...Read more

Not convinced: MRI of whatever doesn't usually see kidney stones unless large. If MRI was for muscles or hernia ok. CT for kidney stones. Also the CT would help evaluate the kidney for trauma. See a doctor sooner than later ...Read more

I have kidney stones. In a recent xray says: there aremultiple phleboliths in lower pelvis". Is this dangerous? The dr asked if had pain.

Stones vs phlebolith: Kidney stones are not phleboliths and phleboliths are not kidney stones; phleboliths are calcification of pelvic blood vessels. Stones in ureter or kidney are very different. Stones cause pain; phleboliths do not cause pain typically. ...Read more

I have a tiny kidney stone. I am experiencing a sharp, moderate pain in the pelvis and pain with urination. Could the kidney stone be causing this?

Yes: Hello, You don't say what "tiny" measures, but a small kidney stone may have passed down the ureter and giving you pelvic pain and pain on urination if it is stuck at the uretero-vesical junction (ureter-bladder connection point).A plain Xray will help. Make sure you strain your urine and follow your doctor's advice. Hope this helps and get well soon. ...Read more

Calcified granulomas within my spleen, bilateral renal cysts, 4mm kidney stone and punctate calcifications in my pelvis, what would the underlying condition be?

Calcified granulomas within my spleen, bilateral renal cysts, 4mm kidney stone and punctate calcifications in my pelvis, what would the underlying condition be?

Mostly normal: These are all trivial imaging findings. The old stuff in your spleen probably reflects a long-ago victory over an infection with histoplasmosis. Kidney cysts are trivial and very common. The calcium stuff in your pelvis is probably phleboliths which never cause trouble. I hope the kidney stone stays in place or can be managed. ...Read more

Have calcified vein in pelvis. Radiologist report says unidentified ideology. (Also have kidney stones) Isn't that a phlebolith? Why then have a CT?

Have calcified vein in pelvis. Radiologist report says unidentified ideology. (Also have kidney stones) Isn't that a phlebolith? Why then have a CT?

Not sure.: Sometimes a phlebolith can't be differentiated from a distal ureter stone on xray, and a CT is done to make the distinction. Perhaps the calcified vein is a larger vein than the small veins associated with phleboliths, and further evaluation is needed. But I can't be sure based on limited info. Try discussing the need for a ct with your doc. ...Read more

Sir, I am having lower back ache with right testicle pain for about 2 months. I am little bit tensed about. So, kindly help me out!

Back, testis, prosta: You did not mention injury, which could be the source of pain. Prostate infection can cause all three but most of time with fever and some voiding troubles. The testis, unless swollen and tender to touch is problem not the cause. One more. A bulging disc at L3-4or 4/5 can cause groin and testis pain. You need urology exam.
