What does bulky kidney mean?

What does bulky kidney mean?

See answer: "bulky" kidney is not a common or usual term used to describe the appearance of the kidney on an imaging (ultrasound, ct, etc) study or report. If there is no mention of a renal mass, hydronephrosis, or other pathology, it likely refers to the size, shape, or contour of your kidney and probably just represents a normal anatomical variation of no clinical significance. Ask your md for clarification. ...Read more

Results from my scan says everything is working fine. A bulky left kidney but they don't think it's clinically significant. What does this mean?

Not sure: We don't normally describe the kidneys as "bulky" or not bulky. It could simply mean that one kidney is larger than the other in which case in and of itself is clinically insignificant or if one kidney is "bulky" in a part of it then that raises the possibility of a tumor or if the calyceal system is enlarged then there maybe obstruction. ASK YOUR DOCTOR! ...Read more

My blood has been unusually thick, is my kidney having trouble filtering my blood?

My blood has been unusually thick, is my kidney having trouble filtering my blood?

No: "thick" blood typically suggests an issue with the clotting system or a problem with the cells in the blood (too many red cells or a problem with platelets). It's hard to offer more insight without more specifics about why you were told your blood is thick. In fact, patients with kidney disease can have issues with bleeding ("thin" blood) because the platelets don't work as well. ...Read more

Why is it important for kidney dialysis patients to not have any saturated fat?

Why is it important for kidney dialysis patients to not have any saturated fat?

Not good for most: Patients on dialysis have very little or no kidney function. This leads to a higher risk for heart disease and is one of the leading causes of death with many times the risk compared to normal population. Any measure to reduce the risk is beneficial including improoving the lipid profile ie reducing "bad" cholesterol and avoiding saturated fats is one way of doing so. ...Read more

Tiny hyperechoic foci without shadowing noted in lower pole of both kidneys-sinus fat/calculi. How dangerous is the situation?

Symptoms?: The ultrasound report merely states that there is something around the lower kidney that is more dense than the rest of the surrounding tissue. In all likelihood it represents fatty change or small kidney-stones. If you had symptoms that prompted this investigation you might require further investigation, if not you could possibly just do a follow up ultrasound in 3 months. ...Read more

Male, 31years, diagnosed w/ 0.7cm kidney parenchima mass, little fat in ct. If malig, what are the chances of it already spread?

Male, 31years, diagnosed w/ 0.7cm kidney parenchima mass, little fat in ct. If malig, what are the chances of it already spread?

Probably Low: Only 50% of masses with a diameter smaller than 1 cm are malignant. Despite the localized, nonaggressive behavior of most small renal tumors, up to 5% of patients with masses 4 cm or smaller present with metastatic disease so we would expect the risk for your 7 mm mass to be much lower. Don't ignore it, get treated, good luck. Check out:

What is fatty liver and what causes it. What is the sideeffects. My side on left an my stomach is fat back pain have kidney problem hurt all the time.

Hello.: Hello. I don’t know what the cause of your fatty liver is. However, a major cause of fatty liver is drinking too much alcohol. Alcohol use combined with poor diet, obesity, abnormally high iron levels and hepatitis c can increase the chances of getting fatty liver. There are also people who have fatty livers who don’t have an illness and who don’t drink. Some people can develop a fatty liver off drinking really heavily for a weekend, and the fat decreases when they stop drinking. In your case, it would be best to get specific input from your doctor as s/he can put this in the context of your total health picture. Take care. ...Read more

I'm 16 and a guy how do you lose lower back fat?

Lose weight: Unfortunately, there are not really any tricks or special exercises to lose fat in particular areas. You need to lose weight overall, then you'll see an improvement in these areas. Diet and exercise - it's more important to make small changes that you can live with long term than to lose a lot of weight (only to gain it back). Meeting with a dietician is often helpful.

I had liposuction on my lower back and fat transferred to my buttocks 3mo ago why do I still have burning sensation in my lower back?

Nerve recovery: One of the most common, usually completely reversible consequences of liposuction is change in sensation. Areas of numbness are expected after liposuction due to minor trauma to sensory nerves but complete sensation is expected to return within days, weeks or at most, months.
