What does "right kidney shows a small cyst" mean?
a small cyst in the kidney is a routine anatomical variation and is of no clinical significance but , a scar can be significant. many a times 'scar' of longstanding duration can lead to a small cyst. a scar can be due to infection which is unusual in men unless they have diabetes or a stone disease. you need to undergo a DMSA scan to know the presence of scars other than the one seen in the ultrasound.
the report the if sent talks about "Dilated calyx with sequalae of chronic pyleonephritis" is this something serious and should i be worried...
Need some more details to address the follow up concern.
The report also suggetss that there was an infection in the kidney and adjacent urine collecting system. You need to clarify
1. Do you have diabetes in the past and the sugar test is normal now?
2. Did you pass a stone in the urine
3. Were you treated for Urine infection any time
4. Were you operated for kidney for any other issue
5. are you on any other medication that decreases your immune system
i have not had diabetes and my sugar level has always been normal.
have never passes stone in the urine
kidney has never been operated upon
never had urine infection recently maybe about 15 years back
no prescribed medication till now...but take ocid 20 for acidity on and off
my blood and urine report are normal. creatinine - 1.3, uric acid -6.5, calcium-8.8, phosphorous -3.8, sodium -140. ,.
You must have had an episode of urine infection which affected the kidney. This can happen with out the knowledge of that individual. But, Urine infections among men is unusual and should be investigated further.
You please get DMSA scan initially and so that we can see further what next can be planned.
