I have pelvic ultrasound yesterday and found out tiny non obstructing nephrolithiasis, bilateral; small renal cyst measuring 9mm, left. Should I worry?

I have pelvic ultrasound yesterday and found out tiny non obstructing nephrolithiasis, bilateral; small renal cyst measuring 9mm, left. Should I worry?

No: Small kidney cysts are pretty common. And small non obstructing stones should not cause much issue especially if you have a history of prior stones. If concerned, check with your urologist or physician who ordered the tests.

I had Kidney stone surgery a month ago and had the stent out 7 days. I now have bilateral stones although all stones were removed. Is this possible?

I had Kidney stone surgery a month ago and had the stent out 7 days. I now have bilateral stones although all stones were removed. Is this possible?

Recurrence: Please contact your treating physician immediately. Although this is a fast recurrence, the important thing to do is ensure complete treatment. A nephrologist needs to identify the type of stones for you. Underlying disease states causing recurrent stones need to be tested for, and a 24 hour urine collection will be performed. Seek treatment at a tertiary academic medical center if possible.

What can cause acute inner elbow lymph node swelling golf ball size bilateral. Passed kidney stone 2 days prior. See dr 2morrow. Took flomax (tamsulosin) for stone

What can cause acute inner elbow lymph node swelling golf ball size bilateral. Passed kidney stone 2 days prior. See dr 2morrow. Took flomax (tamsulosin) for stone

Lymph node swelling: This location of lymph node swelling typically associates with an inflammatory reaction at the elbow or below, in your forearm or hand. Did you have an IV in your arm or hand? Flomax (tamsulosin) could lead to an allergic reaction but I think you would see other evidences. Are nails and fingers irritated? Do you have a rash elsewhere?

I was diagnosed with kidney stones. Worried I have kidney failure: fatigue, lots foamy pale urine, and bilateral pain after 800mg ibu liquigels. I never heard back from blood test. Was I misdiagnosed?

Call your doctor now: Your symptoms are concerning. You might have a kidney infection which is common with kidney stones. Kidney infections can be serious. At the very least you should go to urgent care tonight.

I have bilateral kidney stones in lower pole of kidneys showed on ultrasound but not CT scan and blood in urine pain why? What know will happen?

I have bilateral kidney stones in lower pole of kidneys showed on ultrasound but not CT scan and blood in urine pain why? What know will happen?

SOME TIME YOU MISS: Although cat scan is very useful test to diagnose kidney stones, but it can miss some stones, like crixivan/indinavir stones. You have stones and depending on the size and location, most stones will pass down through the ureters in to the bladder and than out through the urethera. Some time these stones do not pass and have to be treated with lithotripsy or surgery to deal with it.

I have nonobstucting left nephrolithiasis. What can I expect?

I have nonobstucting left nephrolithiasis. What can I expect?

Depends on Size: The size of the stone determines if treatment is needed, as well as what approach. Stones in the kidney >2.5 cm usually need surgery through a keyhole incision in the back (pcnl). Smaller stones (but >4 mm) in the kidney may need eswl (sound waves) or a direct look through the ureter (ureteroscopy) with laser break up. Often stones can be observed by xray, intervening only when painful.

I have multiple non-obstructing nephrolithiasis atleast 8 in the right and 5 in the left. Which measures ranging from 1.7mm to 6.8mm, should I worry?

I have multiple non-obstructing nephrolithiasis atleast 8 in the right and 5 in the left. Which measures ranging from 1.7mm to 6.8mm, should I worry?

No but: Try not to worry but you should be seen and followed by a urologist and get a stone metabolic workup on blood and urine. The 6.8mm stone will not pass on its own and will give pain in all likelihood unless it is in a certain location...More info needed. Get help if possible where you are.

I have several nonobstructing nephrolithiasis, largest is 3.5 mm. Should I worry? How long in furture till they start hurting? I have pain medicine

I have several nonobstructing nephrolithiasis, largest is 3.5 mm. Should I worry? How long in furture till they start hurting? I have pain medicine

Needs follow-up: At this point it sounds like the stones are still in the kidney. They should not cause pain unless they start moving down the kidney tube (ureter). Good news is largest stone is 3.5 mm which should be passable. Would see urologist to follow stones and do tests to see why you are forming them

A patient has been diagnosed with nephrocalcinosis but is suffering from nephrolithiasis.?

Stone formers: Nephrolithiasis means kidney stones. Nephrocalcinosis is a condition of depositing calcium into the tissue/collecting systems/tubules of either the cortex (outer portion) or medulla (inner portion) of the kidney - this can lead to stone formation. Corticol and medullary nephrocalcinosis have different mechanisms/causes and are associated with different physiologic/anatomic conditions (eg msk).
