I had a stint put in 2013 of my right kidney. I have been having alot of pain across my lower back last several months. Was wondering if this has to do with Kidneys. Also have a fills like a mass on my left side if back located by kidney that is hard and has grown. Any connection to the kidney.
Hello, there're many causes to lower back pain, examinations are needed in order to diagnose. As for the feeling for a hard mass growing, I'll recommend a CT scan.
Polcystic kidney disease runs in family, I have protein in urine, inflammation in joints and kidney area, puffy eyes, , itchy hands, rash on butt area, fatigue , ringing in ears, major leg cramps, flank pain kidney area, tingling hands and arms, muscle problems, unable to work out. Neither parent have polycystic disease. Aunts, grandparents, cousins do have it. Have had kidney stones. What could I I have?
The treatment of polycystic kidney disease is mainly to manage the symptoms. A good lifestyle also helps. What you can do is to visit your doctor regularly, follow your doctor's advice strictly. And try to save as much as possible because a kidney transplant is very likely needed.
So. I did a c.t scan and found out I have both kidneys with cyst and a kidney stone plus both of my kidneys are rotating I have been referral to a specialist what would be the next step
Hello. If the cysts are not in big size, urologists will just watch them. If the kidney stone is not big, urologists will just watch it, and may suggest you to drink more water. As for rotation, it's important to find out the cause, however there might be no cause at all. Is it your first CT scan including kidney?

So you suspect that you may have polycystic kidney disease? Do your parents or siblings have this condition? If so, you need first to take an ultrasound of your abdomen to see how your kidney looks like.
