Multiple kidney cyst: The vast majority of renal cysts and benign simple cysts which are a symptomatic and causes no problems. It is not the same as polycystic kidney disease, where many cysts on both kidneys could lead to kidney failure. An ultrasound can determine if these are simple vs complex cysts, the latter could be worrisome. I suspect the kind you have could simply be followed over time; urologist will guide. ...Read more

Hematuria and proteinuria reflect a kidney problem?

Hematuria and proteinuria reflect a kidney problem?

Maybe: "-uria" = in urine. Protein in the urine usually reflects a kidney problem. Blood (hematuria) may be a problem in the kidney, ureter (connection duct to), bladder, prostate gland (in men), and/or urethra.

Subtle hyperechoic foci in both kidneys, probably renal calculi. Left renal cyst measured 17mm. There is no hydronephrosis or other masses. What does this kidney ultrasound mean?

Subtle hyperechoic foci in both kidneys, probably renal calculi. Left renal cyst measured 17mm. There is no hydronephrosis or other masses. What does this kidney ultrasound mean?

no cancer: Renal cysts are very common and nothing to worry about. The subtle hyperechoic foci probably represent tiny kidney stones which may grow over time. No hydronephrosis means no evidence of something obstructing the flow of urine to your bladder. No masses means just that. Please see your doctor to review this report as well as current laboratory tests of your kidney function. ...Read more

Adolescent. Lower right chronic flank pain for 3 years. Hematuria daily. History of kidney stones. Clean scans minus an ovarian cyst.

Get checked,,,: There could be several reasons for this. It could be from many bouts of infection or it could be from stones or it can be a defect in the ureter-bladder valve causing chronic reflux. It's best to go to your doctor and get more tests like an intravenous pyelogram to scan the urinary tract and a urinalysis to check the urine due to the blood and stones. Best of luck. ...Read more

In my kub ultrasound, the result is renal parenchymal disease, bilaterally, and renal cortical cyst, bozniak ii. My creatinine is ok. Will i die now?

Not from kidney dz: The medical parenchymal disease sounds like scarring of kidney. Make sure your blood pressure is perfect and you are not taking ibuprofen. The renal cyst is a fluid filled sack in the kidney. They are common. Bosniak 2 is a cyst with a septation or calcium deposit. A 2a cyst is begn and does not need follow up. A 2b cyst needs follow up because a small percentage can turn into renal cancers. ...Read more

Recent abdo/pelvic MRI shows simple cyst left kidney. Could it cause: ua over 18mth high pyuria, occasional haematuria, proteinuria & infection?

Simple cyst : Simple renal cysts are relatively common. If on MRI or contrast enhanced ct or even a good ultrasound, they meet the criteria for simple cyst, there's really no reason for concern. Solitary cysts of the kidney (of this nature) are not associated with the symptoms and findings you described. ...Read more

There are many causes of complex tubo-ovarian masses including ectopic pregnancy, infections (abscess), normal physiological process (post ovulation bleeding), etc.; that are not cancer. It is good that you have a clinician following you. ...Read more
