In brief: Bad Luck

I am assuming that you are referring to a congenital anomaly (something you were born with) such as double ureter, double kidney, abnormal shaped kidney to name a few.
These are usually random events with no family history. It all happened when you were a tiny little embryo in your mother's uterus!
