Kidney Calcification Causes
What is a questionable punctate calcific density in the kidney, CT report says that. Also what is a 1.2 CM probable cyst in the lower pole of kidney?
Kidney abnormalities: "calcific densities" in the kidneys usually represent calcifications or stones, depending on any other associated findings they may have mentioned. Sometimes kidney tumorsay calcify, but they would have mentioned any finding concerning for this. Cysts are very common, and if they meet certain well defined criteria (bozniak classification), they are usually benign and need no further follow up.
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
Punctate nonobstructing calcific fleck found on left kidney pelvis. I must control stone-mkg w/ Urocit-K. Will this fleck get bigger or pass?
Stone passable: If stone is described as punctate it is likely only a millimeter or two in diameter which makes it a good bet to pass if it moves into the kidney tube (ureter). If you are on Urocit K (potassium citrate) I assume that you have been diagnosed with a low citrate level and this medication supplements the level which can prevent certain calcium crystals from forming. Key is to have stone monitored, with good hydration
Radiology doctor said I have a "calcification/hyperechogenicity" in my kidney, how serious is it on scale of 1 to 10 and what is the cause of it?
Benign: Without seeing the images and full dictation myself my assistance to you is limited, but things that calcify in the body are usually always benign. Hyperechogenicity means "high echos" which is a way to describe a bright appearance in an ultrasound. It often implies calcium. Calcium in the kidney could be a stone or vascular in nature. Seriousness is a 2.See 1 more doctor answer
Would calcified phlebolith in lower right pelvis be the cause of ongoing lower back pain that has no other explained reason after a year if searching for answers?
No: No, those are generally not felt to cause symptoms at all. So if you are having pain, it is likely something else. Have you had an MRI? Consider a second opinion by a specialist if you are not getting the answers you need.
Depends on: Calcifications in kidneys could be because calcified blood vessel walls, or because kidney calculi/stones, or because tumor and associated calcifications. You should see your primary doctor for evaluation and analysis of calcifications.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends how much: I assume somebody saw calcification on an x-ray. Unless it's a tiny amount, it means you have early atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Calcified arteries at age 30 are worrisome and suggest at some point blood flow could be reduced to your heart and other organs. Is your blood sugar, blood pressure or cholesterol elevated? Have a physician check out your metabolism. Avoid junk food.
I have 6 mm calcification (not stone) in my kidney. Is it possible to pass it or I need something else?
How come not a stone: Most discreet 6mm kidney calcifications are in fact kidney stones. Calcification will not pass if it's within kidney tissue. Can pass if in a calyx or renal pelvis, but this is upper limit of what can pass on it's own. Best to get advice from a urologist.
I have three cyst on one kidney less than 2cm and 5 on the other kidney, also less than 2 cm. # have peripheral calcification. I am very worried.?
Worried about what?: You apparently saw a doctor to have the imagining studies done. Did you have any symptoms? What did the doctor who ordered the studies tell you about the imaging results? Cysts in the kidney are not uncommon and simple cysts are not a cause for concern.
Dads kidney ultrasnd say, ^ a cyst is seen in left interpolar region w. 78cm w adjacent calcification. 1.73 x 1.09 CM cyst also noted. Should I worry?
Could be: This sounds like multiple cysts with a calcification. You need to review this with the physician treating dad. Find out what it is. Express your concerns.
Had a utereroscopy 2 days ago, no stones (2) were removed as 1 is embedded in the meat of the kidney&the other might be a calcification. Please explain?
Speak to your doctor: This these are exactly the kind of questions you should be asking of the doctor who did the procedure. If you were too sleepy when they explained it to you, or they didn't explain it clearly, you should call back and ask for clarification.
Mural calcification: First, it is benign and it means as it says, small calcification in a benign cyst. But, you should follow on it and see your doctor.
No, usually...: Seeing renal vascular calcification is not uncommon and usually an incidental finding on imaging studies for other causes such as hematuria, kidney infection, stones, etc.. Of course, such patient needs to look into if having similar calcification in other arteries like aorta, since it is merely a part of systemic vascular disease. Besides, kidney function and size have to be watched and....
I am having kidney stone of 7 mm size due to calcification in kidney. Can it be cured by medicin or any surgery may take place?
They found a 1.6 cm cyst on my right inferior pole of my kidney with small peripheral calcification. The rechecked me and did a 3 month follow up for another ultra sound. Good news, cyst didn't change in size. BUT they want to do another follow up ultra s
Good plan: Small cysts of kidney are seen frequently while actually looking for other problems The usual plan is to follow at reasonable intervals...6 mos. Or so the first year and if no changes yearly or less as time goes by and no growth
What could this mean? : "There is a punctate 2 to 3 mm calcification to the right of the L1 - L2 disc space overlying midpole on right kidney"
Calcification: Body often can heal a part of its tissue and deposit calcium. I am presuming this was a finding on a CT scan you may have had done. The calcification is tiny in size and is often of no significance. It is on the kidney. The size is really small to be of concern. Suggest discuss with the MD that ordered the test.
I had a lower back xray and the dr said it looks like I have calcification on my right kidney this really has me concerned I don't have any pain?
There is again noted a 4 mm calcification overlying the lower pole of the left kidney. The doctors have said its not kidney stone? What could it be?
Phlebolith: I bet it is a bit of calcium in a blood vessel wall
I have a upper pole echogenic focus measuring 3x7x8mm possible early calcification formation or angiomyolipoma in my left kidney should I be worried?
Followed: It should be followed clinically and radiologically
7mm echogenic focus seen at left kidney (not sure of calcification)at upper pole. No hdm. Wat could be the reasons and treatment suggested?
More info is needed: To deduce what is needed for you in facing a 7-mm echogenic cyst, one needs to review & analyze your detailed clinical profile, although this small focus should carry no clinical significance and urgency at this time although worthwhile to be closely followed with repeating a same imaging study.
