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

Kidney Stone (Definition)

Solutes precipitate and combine to form stones formed of calcium oxalate usually around a nidus of uric acid. Other solutes that form stones are ca and mg phosphates, cystine, and uric acid staghorn calculi form in the presence of chronic urinary tract infections. Stones can be painful, may require ...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

7 x 17 mm nodule mid pole, 5 mm upper pole, 4 x 5 mm inferior pole multiple scattered hypoechoic micronodules, feel awful?

Thyroid?: I think you mean nodules in your thyroid gland. Multinodular goiter is a common problem. If your TSH is normal then you are feeling awful for another reason. If the nodules are not hyperfunctioning there should be no symptoms except potential compressive symptoms in the neck. ...Read more

M58, CT scan says "bilateral renal cortical cyst noted. The largest cyst at the upper pole of the left kidney measures 3.8x5 cm." Is this significiant?

M58, CT scan says "bilateral renal cortical cyst noted. The largest cyst at the upper pole of the left kidney measures 3.8x5 cm." Is this significiant?

Probably not: The majority of people develop a few kidney cysts, especially by the time we reach your age. They are usually benign. A kidney ultrasound would better characterize if it is a simple cyst (benign) or not, especially if there was no IV contrast in the CT scan. It should be noted how many cysts were found, which was not apparent in your description, so I'm only assuming one on each kidney. ...Read more

Case of PUJ stenosis Rt side,Rt moderate hydronephrosis with reduction of renal parenchymal thickness 7mm & 1.4cm stone in lower calyx of Rt kidney. ?

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

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

Kub ultrasound finding of anechoic focus at the middle pole measuring 1.5x1.5cm, left kidney. Minimal pelvocaliectasia right kidney.What treatment?

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 more

Echogenic calculus of size 3mm noted in lower calyx. echogenic calculus of size 5mm noted in the mid ureter. Taking drotin DS now. Is surgery required?

Echogenic calculus of size 3mm noted in lower calyx. echogenic calculus of size 5mm noted in the mid ureter.
Taking drotin DS now. Is surgery required?

Not necessarily: Surgery, usually endoscopic (using "scopes"), is only needed if stone is causing pain, too big to pass (usually >or= to 5 mm), or associated with blockage of ureter(blocking flow of urine) or associated urine infection. Most likely if stone is free in calyx it will pass on its own. If attached it may or may not cause symptoms. If no sxs may watch. Follow up with primary MD and/ or urologist. ...Read more

2 reports 1 says 1.2 CM cyst right inferior liver other report says 12 mm in anterior segment of right lobe are these the same cyst/area?

2 reports 1 says 1.2 CM cyst right inferior liver  other report says 12 mm in anterior segment of right lobe are these the same cyst/area?

Yes more than likely: 1.2 cm is 12 mm. The right lobe can be broken down into posterior (segments 6 and 7) and anterior (segments 5 and 8) sectors and inferior (segments 5 and 6) and superior (segments 7 and 8) sectors. So by the description of your scans, you have a liver cyst measuring 1.2 cm (about half an inch) in segment 6. Very common finding, usually without symptoms. Get ultrasound once a year. ...Read more

I have few calculi in upper and mild calyx largest measuring 5mm at right kidney. calculus measuring 4mm in left kidney. Along with left minimal hydroureteronephrosis with dilated entire left uretre.

I have few calculi in upper and mild calyx largest measuring 5mm at right kidney. calculus measuring 4mm in left kidney. Along with left minimal hydroureteronephrosis with dilated entire left uretre.

See urologist: Your calculi seem not large enough for lithotripsy. These may pass on their own. The passage may be facilitated by placing a stent. It would be prudent to consult a urologist for proper treatment. Left untreated, even stones, this small, can damage the kidney. Drink enough water every day so that your urine is mostly colorless. ...Read more

Are 3 mm calcifications in lower poles of kidney, bad?

Kidney Stones: 3 mm is small enough for you to pass on your own, but they will cause you pain if and when you pass them. Have your doctor conduct a 24 hour urine collection for "stone risk profile" to see why you have kidney stones. ...Read more

My CT scan showed a 3 mm right interpolar calyceal stone.  What is the interpolar region of a kidney?

Middle of kidney.: The interpolar region is the middle of the kidney. Radiologists divide the kidney into three parts: the upper pole, lower pole, and the interpole (which is in between them). I hope this helps. ...Read more

What does: Septated upper pole right renal cyst. Right kidney contains multi septated cyst, 4.5cm in size. May contain punctate calcification. - mean?

A single cyst: The cyst you have is not a simple cyst but a septate cyst ,that means the cyst space inside is divided into multiple small spaces from by of bands of tissue. Calcification in the cysts is common from concretions from long standing fluid inside the cysts. But as the cyst if 4.5 cm, just be it monitored with help of US once in every yr-2 yrs to r/o cancer development.Look for pain,blood in urine ...Read more

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.

Bilateral lithiasis left kidney measuring 11 mm in pelvic ureter junction WBC 20-25 in urine?

Bilateral lithiasis left kidney measuring  11 mm in pelvic ureter junction WBC 20-25 in urine?

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 more

Impression   =  minimal lelft hydronephrosis  no  ureter  dilatation A 5MM nonobstructing left renal calculas bladder shows norma out l?

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
