Swollen eyes after stent ureteral stent placement? It's my 3rd day after getting kidney stones out. Stent out in 2 days.

Ureteral stent: I'm confident that the stent has little to do with "swollen eyes". It is certainly true that stents can cause significant discomfort. I'm sure that you will be happy to get it out.

I'm 17 I have a hypotonic and tortuous ureter. What does that mean?

I'm 17 I have a hypotonic and tortuous ureter. What does that mean?

Ureters..: Ureters are usually straight tubes from your kidneys to your bladder. Tortuous means they are very curvy - kinda like those straws that swirl around. Hypotonic means they don't contract and move the urine down themselves very well. All this can mean the urine may not have the best route from kidney to bladder, and this can lead to urine backing up into the kidneys which can cause problems.

-mild hydronephrosis, right; up to mid-ureter -consider possible partially obstucting lucent ureterolithiasis. What it means?

Stones: You probably have a stone obstructing your right kidney's urine outflow tract that has caused the tract to become enlarged (hydronephrosis). Lucent just implies that the stone is not visible on xray or ultrasound. A ct scan should still be able to pick it up though.

What are the symptoms of ureter cancer. How is it detected, and where usually aches? Does the pain proclaimed due to blockage or by other mean?

Bleeding/Obstruction: Tumor in the ureter can cause obstruction of urine flow what will lead to pain. Bleeding in the urine is a common finding. Pain can be located anywhere in the abdomen or even in the back. A CT scan of the abdomen can easily detect the abnormality in the kidney or even in the ureter if the tumor growth is more advanced.

Does "prominent appearance of the right renal pelvis and ureter which measures 1cm" from renal ultrasound mean anything?

Does "prominent appearance of the right renal pelvis and ureter which measures 1cm" from renal ultrasound mean anything?

It could: When something blocks the drainage of urine from the kidney to the bladder, the renal pelvis and ureter dilate or blow up like a balloon. There is a range of normal, though, and some people have a bigger renal pelvis than others. If it is just "prominent" it may be normal. The more dilated, the more likely there is a real problem. Depending on your symptoms, it may require more testing.

Had Ultrasound. ..Prostatic calcification found. Ureter tube narrow...having frequent urination after drinking water...what's this mean...

Had Ultrasound. ..Prostatic calcification found. Ureter tube narrow...having frequent urination after drinking water...what's this mean...

Frequency: Your urinary frequency could be related to infection or inflammation in the kidney, bladder, prostate or urethra. Associated burning suggests infection. Prostatic calcifications raises the possibility of chronic prostatitis which may not be due to infection. A narrow ureter may cause retrograde problems with the kidney on that side. You need a urologist to properly evaluate and treat you.

What does it mean to have a swollen lymph node?

What does it mean to have a swollen lymph node?

Inflammation.: Lymph nodes are filters for fluid and debris coming from nearby body parts that is collected via lymphatic ducts. They are filled with immune system cells, lymphocytes and react to various processes from minor infections, irritations like rashes, up to serious malignancies. When the node enlarges, the immune system is dealing with one of these processes. Most of the time, it's something minor.

What does it mean when your vigina is swollen and it doesn't hurt?

Yeast? Allergy?: It would be unusual for the vaginal area, labia, etc to swell up without also being itchy, painful, or irritated. Possibilities that come to mind include yeast infection, genital herpes, chemical irritation (e.g. from spermicide?), allergic reaction, e.g. to a drug, perfume, or laundry detergent. All these usually would hurt or be irritated, but sometimes not. Get care if it doesn't clear up soon.
