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

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?

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
