Kidney stones: Can cause that pain. The mthfr 677 ; 1298 genotype can cause elevated homocysteine and uric acid levels which can contribute to kidney stones. If + for mthfr, you can fix with l-methylfolate, p5p, and methylcobalamin--all natural and won't hurt kidneys. I also have lupus and have mthfr, and kidney stones...So i know what it feels like. :p.

Question unclear: Loop of henle is part of an individual nephron (1 immion/kidney) & situated between glomerulus (mini filter) in kidney cortex & collecting duct in kidney medulla. Nephron cells would form into a cyst if obstructed or perhaps as u say "could not reach medullary region".

Dromedary hump?: A common cause of focal kidney thickening of the left kidney is a normal anatomic variant called a dromedary hump. However, suspicious areas that might represent tumor or areas of infection often need a ct scan with contrast or ultrasound with intravenous contrast to make sure a more serious problem is not present.

Here is some...: Anatomical configuration of renal pelvis and the size of stone decide the varying pattern of stone-related symptoms ranging from no symptom to excruciating unbearable pain depending on the degree of blockage from acting as a ball valve. So, consult urologist for individual, situational stone-related symptoms and management.

What does region of interest over the gallbladder mean? I have had past kidney CA, also unknown lesions on the liver and VHL syndrome

What does region of interest over the gallbladder mean? I have had past kidney CA, also unknown lesions on the liver and VHL syndrome

Ask the doctor: who ordered the study to review the results with you and the doctor should discuss the report with the radiologist who dictated their finding if the finding is not clear. In general, this may just describe the region of the right side of the liver near the gallbladder.

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.

My dad previously diagnosed with prostrate cancer & the affect region was removed. However, recent report shows black spot in its kidney. Any danger?

Black Spot: Most certainly needs urgent investigation especially if your dad's cancer was late stage. I would seek immediate ultra sound and MRi investigation to determine the true nature of the black spot.

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
