In my 24 weeks & 5days scan report says that the fetal ap diameter if left kidney is 5mm. Is a big problem?

In brief: Not necessarily

The renal pelves are normally checked during a fetal survey.
On occasion the the renal pelvis may contain urine making it visible on sonogram. When visible it can be measured. When the measurements are larger than expected, usually a sonogram with a perinatologist is done. They will advise the patient on what followup, if any is needed.
