Im 35 yrs of age and diagnose with septated cyst between the spleen and upper pole of the left kidney is it too bad and need to undergo operation?

CYST

Kidney
THE SIZE AND PRESUMMED ORIGIN OF THE CYST DETERMINE THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEM. A SEPTATION PLACES IT INTO A DIFFERENT CATEGORY IF IT'S FROM THE KIDNEY BUT IT IS STILL VERY LIKELY TO BE BENIGN AND UNLIKELY TO CAUSE SYMPTOMS UNLESS IT GROWS. THE KEY IS THE THICKNESS OF THE WALL AND IF THERE IS BLOOD FLOW OR CALCIFICATIONS SEEN IN THE WALLS OR SEPTUM. THESE ARE IN A MORE SERIOUS CATEGORY.

6mm stone in the upper pole of the left kidney. Painful since I passed my first stone 6 months ago. Microhematuria x 6 months. What are my options?

Scope vs ESWL

Kidneys
Ureteroscopy for your symptomatic stone is emerging as a better option for treating renal calculi than ESWL. It is also important to be on some type of therapy to minimize development of more stones.

What is chronic pyelonephritis and what is focal area scarring in the lower pole of the left kidney?

Chronic Pyelo

Cicatrix
Chronic pyelonephritis is the result of any process in the kidney that causes prolonged inflammation and fibrosis (scarring). Common causes include: persistent or recurrent renal infections, vesicoureteral reflux (urine going backwards into the kidney), or urinary tract obstruction. A Board Certified Urologist or Nephrologist are the best doctors to review these types of findings.

It appears the next step would be to get a CT scan or MRI with contrast (if you can tolerate), as I am sure your physician or radiologist has already recommended/ordered. There are many possibilities and this is just a very scientific description of what is seen on the ultrasound, but the radiologist cannot tell you what it is yet. After the CT or MRI, a biopsy or surgery might be necessary.

Today i an admitted to ultrasound and doctor is said your right kidney is hypoplastic. and it is half of the left kidney.So what can i do for recover?

Nothing

Kidneys
when one kidney is hypoplastic it means that the kidney did not develop. This is not correctable. The focus should be on preserving the remaining kidney function. You can live perfectly well with only one kidney.

Polycystic kidneys?

Open-uri20121224-17431-9avuxb
There is a condition called polycystic kidney disease in which there are multiple cysts within the substance of the kidneys. They may not be detectable early in life, but as one gets older, the cysts grow and may become more numerous. Often, tests/scans are being done for other reason, but findings such as your is suspicious for PKD. Follow-up with doc for periodic monitoring. Good luck

Upper GI Surgeon did Abdo/Pelvic MRI & it has found simple cyst on left kidney. Does this require any treatment or procedure?

No

Cyst
Simple cysts are almost always benign and are quite common in the kidney and liver. No treatment or biopsy needs to be done unless the cyst is very large and pressing on other organs.
