Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and kidney cancer


895634 tn?1283992810 Anybody aware of an association between treatment and kidney stones? I've had renal colic before, but this is by far the most painful bout. Hepatologist gave green light for Vicodin or Percocet, which are helping. Just wondering if there is a connection between stones and hep c treatment.
Avatar n tn This one involves pus in the kidney and surrounding sack. His right kidney, where all of the stones have been, is down to less than 25% output and may have to be removed. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be causing this and what the outcome might be?
Avatar n tn kidney stones need assessed by a nephrologist and also sometimes may be a calcium disorder and endocrinologists see this as well.
196896 tn?1189759421 I happened to find information on the about the correlation of kidney stones, high calcium levels, and Hyperparathyrodism. Check it out! Hyperparathyroidism is also known as "moans, groans, stones, and bones." The symptoms: Loss of energy. Don't feel like doing much. Tired all the time. Just don't feel well; don't quite feel normal. Hard to explain but just feel kind of bad. Feel old. Don't have the interest in things that you used to.
Avatar n tn I had a confirmed UTI in mid September. 5 days ago (Sat), I began symptoms again---extreme pain while urinating & difficulty emptying my bladder. Next day (Sun), I go to Urgent Care who takes a urine sample & says I have a UTI, gives me Cipro 500mb BID & sends me home. By Mon morning, the burning is unbearable & I see my gynecologist nurse practitioner. She swabs my vagina & takes another urine sample.

Avatar m tn I have 7 kidney stones in my left kidney and one in the right. PSA is 6.3. Can the stones be some of the cause?
Avatar n tn Do you agree that it was kidney stones? And that we are doing the right thing with the cyst..taking the wait and see approach?
Avatar n tn Hi, How many times have you experienced this ? Was this present prior to the treatment of your kidney stones? What kind of treatment did you undergo? This may be case of dry orgasm or orgasm with no seminal discharge. The following may lead to a dry orgasm: "Retrograde ejaculation. In this condition, semen is forced back into the bladder instead of out through the penis.
Avatar n tn First my feet swelled up, then they went down, now my back hurts, around the kidney area, right flank pain, and sometimes left flank pain, and upper back pain, and when I get a pain in my back, I also feel a pain in my left at the same time. It hurts when I sit down and not that much when I move. If someone could tell me what you think is wrong, that would be great.
Avatar n tn There can be many reasons for this - the most serious being bladder cancer. Other causes can include a kidney stone, lower GU infection, or intrinsic kidney disease. A cystoscopy is recommended for a comprehensive evaluation. Imaging the kidneys with an ultrasound or CT scan can also be considered to evaluate for stones or any anatomical causes. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar f tn Found out I have kidney stones. Now suffering from kidney stones, mental confusion, lack of motivation (mild depression), heart palpitations, dizziness/faint feeling. My urine calcium is 416, my blood calcium is 10.2, and my PTH is 23. Wondering if I have hyperparathyroidism? My urologist put me on thiazide and wants me to watch sodium intake-I'm not a salt person anyway so this is easy. My blood pressure seems to be creeping up a bit as well. I would appreciate any help!
Avatar n tn I would recommend that he see his nephrologist for further evaluation. Kidney stones has a tendency to recur. Urinalysis and imaging studies such as ultrasound or CTscan may help with the diagnosis. This is also to rule out the any tumor residual. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Kidney stones, kidney infection like pyelonephritis, polycystic kidney disease and kidney cancer are few conditions causing kidney pain. In pyelonephritis there is fever with chills,nocturia and pain. Sharp intense pains signify infection or stones. Dull aching pain is seen in cancer and polycystic kidneys. A comprehensive physical examination and medical history will be the first step towards a correct diagnosis.
Avatar f tn So my question is has anyone had the blood in their urine and stomach cramps and had something else other than the kidney stones. Also I like to mention that my kidney function test came back fine. I would appreciate anyone's input.
Avatar n tn A CT scan revealed two minute stones and a hypodense intraparenchynal lesion all located mid right kidney. An ex-ray noted costochondral calcification projected over the kidneys. What do these terms mean and should I be concerned about metastasized papillary cancer. Is it possible these areas might be cancer?
Avatar n tn Dark spots that appear on kidney ultrasounds can represent cysts, abscesses, abnormalities of the blood vessels, kidney stones, old calcifications or kidney cancer. Cysts on the kidney are usually harmless and large cysts may need surgical treatment if they are producing symptoms. Each of these condition mentioned above will present will associated symptoms and signs like burning urination, increased frequency of urination, weight loss etc.A CT scan will definitely be helpful.
Avatar n tn Hematuria or blood in the urine may be due to stones, infection, cancer/tumor, or kidney disease. IVP and cystoscopy are usually done to evaluate both the upper and lower urinary tracts respectively. On the other hand, proteinuria or abnormal amount of protein in the urine occurs when the filter unit of the kidney or glomerulus is damaged. There are also many conditions that may lead to this. It is best that we wait for the results of the tests done for proper diagnosis.
Avatar n tn My friend has had many double kidney infections. She was just told that she has and enlarged left kidney and it was failing. We are looking for information about how it happens, what to do, & what she is looking at as treatment?
Avatar m tn He was able to view my CT scan fromt the hospital and indicated that I had a 2mm kidney stone in my left kidney and also a renal calcification in the meaty part of the kidney. He stated this was not a kidney stone and wanted more tests to rule out cancer. He indicated it was more like a cyst. I also got the results of my urine test and found out I have a bladder infection today. Today I had a CT scan with and without the contrast dye. My question is...what is a renal calcification???
Avatar f tn Hi, Hematuria or blood in the urine can be due to many conditions. such as trauma, stones, infections, viral infections, nonspecific inflammations of the kidney or obstructions of the urinary tract. The evaluation of hematuria requires that examining the entire urinary tract including the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Management of blood in urine depends upon the underlying cause. It is good that your cytoscopy showed normal results.
387767 tn?1345875627 I am hoping that he will come through but we have managed kidney disease through diet and I am sure you have heard many times that most of these disease's come from feeding your cat biscuits. I have included an excerpt from a Vet finding: Recent research suggests a link between vaccination for feline distemper and immune-mediated inflammation of the kidneys, which is thought to be the cause of CRF. Annual boosters for distemper are completely unnecessary.
Avatar n tn I had several kidney stones and hydronephrosis while pregnant (mostly due to improper or inability of the kidney to drain), but at that time my nephroptosis hadn't been diagnosed. If you have a good doctor (OB/GYN and Urologist) you should have minimal issues during pregnancy. If the docs are watching you closely this should avoid serious complication. Good luck!
Avatar m tn I have had kidney stones before. The last episode was 5 yeas ago and I had a 7mm stone blasted by lithotripsy. I have had blood in my urine many time after that but the pain was not that bad. My urilogist has sceduled me for a CT scan for april the 25 but I dont want to deal with this pain for that long. Does any one have any suggestions for me.Oh I forgot to add my grandmother had kidney cancer and I have two uncles that are on dialisis.
Avatar f tn Hypertrophy means under developed and hypoplastic is enlarged so was he born with one under developed kidney and the other was enlarged due to compensation? Or did the cancer metastasize to the left kidney causing it to hypertrophy? Are 3x3mm stones big enough to cause a blockage? When the CT report says a moderate amount of stool, do they mean in the kidney (It is not specified within the report)? Please post your thoughts as I am a little lost on this one...Thank you!
Avatar f tn In February I underwent two surgeries to get rid of 10 stones. Stones sitting in your kidney can cause kidney infections. Your best bet is to see the urologist and take care of those stones. Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn I am a 40 year old female with a history of kidney stones. Latest ultrasound (1 year ago) noted stones bilaterally. I have had previous symptoms of UTI only to have tests come back negative for infection but positive for blood. The last 4 urine samples have all tested positive for microscopic blood ( all tests done in the past 5 months). I just had my anual physical 1 month ago and urine test noted traces of blood with no infection. My worry is that this could be a sign of bladder cancer.
