The doctor said that my baby had a cystic lesion on her kidney. What can be done? Is this serious?
Not necessarily: Cystic renal lesions range from simply cysts (spherical sac of fluid such as water) to more complex cystic masses such as cancer. If basic imaging was done and it isn't clear whether it is a simply cyst, it may be best to conduct further imaging such as a CT or MRI (with contrast). Hope this helps. Good luck! ...Read more

18 yr old has pain in lower parts of right side of abdomen, side, and right lower back has history of lapband, h pyloria, poly cy cystic fibrosis
10 yr old daughter MRI on lower back for curve says l5-6 diffuse mild disc bulge & mild degenerative change in facets; l6-s1 cystic changes & degenerative change in facets greater on right. Normal?
Unusual: 6 lumbar vertebrae is an unusual variant but occasionally seen. To have degeneration at 10 is certainly unusual as well, but since MRI has been available, it's become apparent that younger patients can start having degeneration early. At this point, i wouldn't be terribly alarmed - simple conservative care and observation and followup should suffice - your child may very well grow up just fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
