Nephrologist 's  Response
first of all the Xray will never give such findings you mentioned.
This must be the sonography report.
You didn't mention the in findings of left kidney.
The changes in right kidney do suggest some problem with kidney like maybe presence of infection (pyelonephritis)or changes of chronic kidney disease. These findings need to be interpreted in accordance with your detailed history, symptoms, signs and relevant investigations like urine routine, RFTs. Plz consult your doctor for the same.
