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. As long as they stay where they are, you shouldn't worry. You could have your urine tested to see if there is a reason why you have stones. If you get onset of severe pain radiation along your side, tell you doctor about stones. ...Read more
Won't Pass: The stone is too big to pass. It may never bother you if it stays in the lower pole. If it moves it will obstruct and will require an intervention. Try and find out why you make stones since uric acid stones can shrink in an alkaline environment. Also, if the stone is calcium decreasing urinary calcium may prevent the stone from enlarging. See a urologist, lithotripsy may be of benefit. ...Read more
Ultrasound showed 2.4x1.3 cm hypoechoic nonvascular region in upper pole cortex of left kidney. Otherwise normal kidney. I'm freaking out. Cancer?
It can be benign: Cysts are common in the kidneys. So ask your doctor to confirm if it is cystic or solid structure. Cysts are benign fluid filled structures whic can be left alone. Solid lesions can be a tumor and may need to be removed. Repeat follow up in 6 months can be reassuring if there is no further increase in size. You may need to seen a Urologist to advice you further ...Read more
In your opinion what treatment for Punctate nonobstructing left upper pole renal stone. 15 mm cyst lower pole left kidney
with milk of calcium.
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
Here are some...: The odd to pass a 4-mm stone through ureter to bladder in 2 weeks is about 75-85%; for a 11-mm one, its odd to pass should be next to zero. Finding 20-25wbc indicates significant inflammation most likely related with stone-related irritation to the lining of urinary tract. So, intervention at convenient time is advised as long as being tolerable and of no fever. More? Ask treating urologist timely ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Here are some…: Minimal hydronephrosis could be just a radiologist's subjective impression, but may not be related with a 5-mm non-obstructing stone. However, the key point still lies on how to manage this 5-mm stone, which can be deduced by analyzing the past history of stone activity and balancing medical necessity and professional possibilities. So, consult urologist timely. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Apparently, the condition of your right kidney has been chronic, most likely, inborn. From what you described, this kidney may be still salvageable by surgery – either open or laparoscopy with or without robotic assistance. I'm sure, before the procedure, a renal nuclear scan can be done to define the residual function of right kidney. For more detail, ask and talk with your doctor. Best wish. ...Read more
My CT scan showed a 3 mm right interpolar calyceal stone. What is the interpolar region of a kidney?
I had right kidney stone. Had ct scan. Along with the kidney stone the report says punctate calcification in lower pole of right kidney.What is this?
3 mm calculi: Yes, calculus is one stone; calculi are multiple stones; they are small if all are 3 mm or less; multiple 3 mm stones requires determination of cause; if not done, you require 24 hour urine testing for chemical analysis; and blood testing. Meanwhile, increase fluids to 3-4 Liters daily; add 4-5 tablespns ReaLemon Extract daily; follow low salt, low protein diet; reduce oxalate foods also; ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Small lobulated heterogeneously enhancing isodense mass at upper pole of left kidney measuring 2.8x2.4 cm. Please help?
Ask your doctor...: More info on your general health profile will help decision-making. Clinically, nowadays, you have 3 reasonable options to follow including: 1, if young and healthy, do laparoscopic partial nephrectomy; 2. if reluctant, do biopsy to decide benignancy or malignancy - if malignant, operate as that in 1.; if benign, watch and see; 3.consider radio-frequency or cryo ablation.

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

An X-ray showed a 6mm mid-left renal calculus stone in my 17 years old daughter. Is this in the kidney?
Yes.: The term renal indicates that the calculus is in the kidney. Mid refers to the midpole, or near the center of the kidney, as opposed to the upper or lower poles. If the stone were to pass into the ureter, it would be reported as a ureteral stone. A 6mm stone may pass on its own, but chances decrease above 5mm. If there are no symptoms it may not need treatment, but many options are available. ...Read more

1.Grade -I fatty liver.
2.Multiple right renal calculi (renal mid pole calculus - largest -9mm)
3.Left Renal calculus-5.5mm.No hydronephrosis.
Small kidney stone: This is a small stone. To help it pass on its own, drink 4 liters of fluid per day. As much as possible, use lemonade or lemon extract added to water. The citrate in the lemon will help dissolve the stone. Minimize salt. Minimize animal protein. Push the fluids to 4 liters minimum per day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2 mm kidney stone at mid calyx of lift kidney what is the best way to remove? Taking flowmas is no problem?
Here are some ...: Clinically, a non-moving 2-mm stone would not usually cause symptom & if it is detached and dropped to move through ureter, it would most likely pass by itself although you may experience some pain, but much better than taking surgery-related risks to undergo procedures. So, leave it alone. Yet, Flomax (tamsulosin) would not help a 2-mm calyceal stone to move and pass although it may help stone in lower ureter ...Read more
How is it determined if a3 mm echogenic focus without posterior shadowing in mid-portion is a kidney stone?
May not be stone: You likely have had a renal ultrasound. A kidney stone usually does create shadowing because it does not allow transmission of sound waves. A "twinkle" artifact is also associated with a stone. Other structures can be echogenic, including calcium deposits in blood vessels, fat in the renal sinus, and fat containing benign masses. CT scan without contrast is most sensitive to detect stones. ...Read more
have 4mm kidney stone in mid pole of left kidney.have a long flight,India to USA in 2days.doctor says 4 mm is nothing to worry about. What you think?
Hopefully fine: There is always a small chance that the stone could begin to move into the ureter (kidney tube) but this is not likely. You may want to consider treatment of the stone electively before another long trip or important event so that chance of an event is eliminated. Would talk to your urologist. ...Read more
My wife went through a lithotripsy last year for a 7mm stone. Again 2.5 mm stone in mid pole of left kidney. Acute pain & vomiting. Lithotripsy again?
Possibly.: The most important think is to rule out the presence of a urinary infection. This needs to be treated as soon as possible. Next is symptom control. Lithotripsy is an option, but work with your urologist to see which approach would have the highest rate of success with the smallest degree of invasiveness. Good luck to you both. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mid pole calculus is noted in my right kidney measuring 8.7 mm and mild hydronephrosis with extra renal pelvis is seen in the both kidneys.
See professionals...: See an well-experienced urologist to decide if it's necessary to intervene; if needed, at what price? For your condition, a professional needs to share the balancing thought on the need and possibility of care before committing its removal, which usually can be done through the penis with fine scope and laser. For detail, check with experts. Best wish ... ...Read more
Unpredictable...: It is unpredictable to tell when a stone attached to a calyceal papilla may drop and move into the ureter so hopefully pass through ureter into the bladder; so, no one can tell, but just be alert for such occurrence as described. In general, the odd for a 4-mm stone to successfully pass is about 75-85% in 2 weeks, but it does not mean a stone < 4 mm will not pass or one >4 mm will never pass. ...Read more

Cysts: Renal cysts are present in nearly 50% of the population over 50 y/o. They have a classification system that estimates the likelihood of them being benign called the bozniac classification. Size is less relevant than wall thickness or complexity of the cyst. ...Read more
Dr said I have a stone in right kidney few wks ago. Now i have pain in mid back that comes and goes. Feels irritatedIs this pain related to the stone?
Renal colic?: If this pain to which you refer is on the right side in the mid-back, then I would think it realistic to presume this being due to your kidney stone. The pain associated with a kidney stone, termed "renal colic" tends to start in the mid-back and shoot down and around to the front. But, having pain would be contingent on that stone trying to pass, and not if it's just sitting up in the kidney. ...Read more
