An X-ray showed a 6mm mid-left renal calculus stone in my 17 years old daughter. Is this in the kidney?

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

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.

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?

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?

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 more

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.

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

How long does it normally take a stone in the mid pole to pass into the ureter?

How long does it normally take a stone in the mid pole to pass into the ureter?

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

Kidney stone: What that means is that you a stone, 8mm in size in the mid portion of your kidney, probably inside a calyx. It may or may not give you symptoms of flank pain, colic, hematuria. That size stone would be difficult to pass and probably needs to be treated with lithotripsy. ...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?

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

I have a diagnosis of rounded appearing isoechoic mass at mid pole on kidney measuring 2.8 cm. What are the chances it is dromedary hump vs renal mas?

Isoechoic means: That altho "separate" from kidney tissue it's echo "appearance" is that of the kidney itself. Thus the "dromedary hump" a NORMAL FOLDING of the edge of the organ.
Your ordering Medical Professional must decide if further testing is indicated!!!

Can IVP be used as guide for lithotripsy. I have mid-uretal 5mm Radiolucent stone that has moved 3.5cm in 6 wks. Mild hyronephrosis.

Can IVP be used as guide for lithotripsy. I have mid-uretal 5mm Radiolucent stone that has moved 3.5cm in 6 wks. Mild hyronephrosis.

Yes: IVP is one of the best ways of finding stones. Generally the size, shape, and location of kidney stones. Some (15%) of stones do NOT show on regular x rays and then, IVP shows them up as gaps in the dye and can be the only way to see these uncommon stones. ...Read more

Husband has mid ureteric stone and moderate hydronephrosis. Is it bad? Does that mean kidney removal? Left kidney functioning normal.

Husband has mid ureteric stone and moderate hydronephrosis. Is it bad? Does that mean kidney removal? Left kidney functioning normal.

No need to remove: Kidney. The stone will either pass or it will not. This largely depends on size. In general, stones less than 5 mm in size should be given an opportunity to pass. Patients can be advised that stones less than 4 mm in size generally pass within one to two weeks. Larger stones may need help from a urologist. ...Read more

I had lap gb surgery ten days ago. There was sludge/stone left in the duct which will be removed endo soon. Having pain on far mid right side. Ok?

Recent surgery: Some discomfort following that procedure may not be unusual, but it shouldn't be severe or persist much longer. Residual sludge may be a factor, but I recommend that you be evaluated by the surgeon who performed your surgery if symptoms persist or worsen, if there's significant tenderness or any inflammation of the incision. ...Read more

What causes pain in my lower and mid back and in my abdomen in the front and it's really bad pain? Can it be kidney stones or something else?

Pain syndrome: Your pain pattern is not typical of kidney stones. Kidney stone pain is typically flank and not mid back nor mid abdomen. This appears to be something else - like intestinal pain, intestinal colic, and/or muscle spasms in your back. What triggers pain? What relieves pain? When does pain appear? What work up have you had? ...Read more

Within cortex of mid pole of the right kidney, there is a 6x7x5mm echogenic lesion with no posterior shadowing. What does this mean? Stone or tumor?

Within cortex of mid pole of the right kidney, there is a 6x7x5mm echogenic lesion with no posterior shadowing. What does this mean? Stone or tumor?

Not likely a stone: The lack of shadowing generally means that it is not a Stone. Is it a complex cyst or a tumor or a benign mass? That depends on a myriad of factors. While doctors may have their suspicions, the proof is in a biopsy. If the pt is otherwise healthy, it may not be worthwhile to biopsy an incidental lesion. TTYD or use HealthTap Prime.

I have mid-back pain to right of spine with shortness of breath. Oxalates and purines make both symptoms much worse. Scans show zero stones. Ideas?

It's unlikely that: Eating a meal rich in either oxalates or purines would cause an immediate increase in your symptoms. Calcium oxalate kidney stones take a while to form. A diet high in purines can also contribute to gout. Since the diagnosis is uncertain, you should follow up with your doctor. Meanwhile, stay well hydrated to limit crystal formation in case you actually do have kidney stones or gout. ...Read more

I have kidney stone in mid calics. Due to that I have back pain and pain in testicles. But when I have sex this pain subsides. Pls suggest is it normal?

Normal: The brain's perception of pain is a complicated phenomenon. Endorphin response to sex likely suppresses your perception of pain, however, the act of having sex probably has no effect on the actual presence, movement, or associated inflammation of the stone. ...Read more
