2 doctors agree

In brief: See below

Flank pain if definitely coming from kidneys occurs in 2 conditions commonly which are infection called pyelonephritis, and kidney stones, if present in both kidneys.
A rare cause of flank pain from kidneys is flank pain hematuria syndrome, ie accompanied by passage of blood caused by a condition called IgA nephropathy.
