Hi,
There is a high possibility that your right kidney is smaller because of what we call 'hypoplastic nature'. In such a case, the other kidney compensates for this by becoming larger, and thus ensuring that overall function is unaffected.
It looks like that is what has happened in your case - your left kidney being bulkier probably is due to what we term 'compensatory hypertrophy'.
If you have no issues such as recurrent urine, then you have nothing to worry about.
I suggest you get a baseline evaluation of your kidney function which will involve at least a Complete Urine Examination, Serum Creatinine measurement.
If these are normal, you probably can go ahead and take treatment for assisting conception.
Regards.

My daughter 17 years old and is presenting with severe kidney pain, nausea, fatigue and positive for haematuria however, CT scan has shown all clear and no kidney stones are present. Why else could there be blood in urine?She is a-febrile and doctor has done a urinalysis and said it is not a UTI although there is blood present.Thanks for your advice! Danielle

I am a 35 year old female who has a slightly enlarged liver and elevated liver enzymes following a pregnancy complicated by severe bilateral hydronephrosis. I recently had litho twice to remove stones on left side ( one 13 mm, one 10 mm and one 5 mm). I am having problems with random severe cramps on the right front side of my lower rib cage. My dr. gave me muscles relaxants to carry with me all the time but they make me too tired to function. Do you have any suggestions as to the cause of the pain and treatment for it? Could the large amounts of pain medications taken during my pregnancy be the cause of my liver problems?

This is what my test results say. I am freaking out as a friend of mine just lost a kidney to cancer. I can't get an apt for a urologist for 2 weeks. Should I be worried? The right kidney measures 10.8 cm in longitudinal dimension. The left kidney measures 10 cm in longitudinal dimension. Several calcifications are seen in the left kidney, measuring up to 5 mm in the interpolar region, compatible with nonobstructing calculi. There is a probable parapelvic cyst in the upper pole of the left kidney, measuring 9 mm. There is no hydronephrosis. There is no intra-abdominal ascites. The imaged proximal portions of the aorta and IVC are unremarkable. IMPRESSION Nonobstructing left renal calculi. No hydronephrosis. Hepatic steatosis.
