Urologist 's  Response
Welcome to HCM.
You need to be examined as a whole.
Physical examination, findings on CT SCAN, evidence of infection in blood and urine should decide the line of treatment.
Size difference can be there, but it may be an error of measurement as well.
Kindly stick to your urologist/nephrologist and appropriate steps need be taken as and when necessary.
Best regards
