Left kidney cysts,1-4cm & 1-1.5 cm. Mid pole. Should I see specialist and can they be cancerous?

Left kidney cysts,1-4cm & 1-1.5 cm. Mid pole. Should I see specialist and can they be cancerous?

Usually not: Most of us adults have kidney cysts and they are usually benign. There are certain characteristics on the scan which can make us more suspicious for cancer and require further testing. Radiologists are very good at picking those up. Usually for benign cysts, we just recheck them in 3-12 months to make sure they are not growing. ...Read more

2 mm kidney stone at mid calyx of lift kidney what is the best way to remove? Taking flowmas is no problem?

Here are some ...: Clinically, a non-moving 2-mm stone would not usually cause symptom & if it is detached and dropped to move through ureter, it would most likely pass by itself although you may experience some pain, but much better than taking surgery-related risks to undergo procedures. So, leave it alone. Yet, Flomax (tamsulosin) would not help a 2-mm calyceal stone to move and pass although it may help stone in lower ureter ...Read more

In my usg the impression says: echogenic focus in the mid cortal area of left kidney. The kidney measures108.4*53.0mm.  What does this mean?

Nonspecific: The kidney measurement is relatively normal and is essentially just given for reference. The echogenic focus is somewhat nonspecific and could be many things (angiomyolipoma is one that quickly comes to mind). Without seeing the images or knowing if you've had other imaging, it's hard to give much more information. ...Read more

Dr said I have a stone in right kidney few wks ago. Now i have pain in mid back that comes and goes. Feels irritatedIs this pain related to the stone?

Renal colic?: If this pain to which you refer is on the right side in the mid-back, then I would think it realistic to presume this being due to your kidney stone. The pain associated with a kidney stone, termed "renal colic" tends to start in the mid-back and shoot down and around to the front. But, having pain would be contingent on that stone trying to pass, and not if it's just sitting up in the kidney. ...Read more

Basic stuff: Physical exam's good?

Woke up with dull, uncomfortable pain in mid-lower left back for past three days. Urinating fine haven't pulled anything. What could it be my kidneys?

Most likely : It's your back. If you had a kidney infection, you would have a fever and would feel quite sick. Kidney stones are usually extremely painful. Although you don't feel like you pulled something, I suspect you actually did. The best thing to do is for you to see a doctor and get checked out to make sure it is really just muscle pain. Good luck! ...Read more
