Thanks for writing in.
The size of the renal pelvis is almost normal and not something you should be unduly worried about. We however would need to know the case of the dilation. A CT scan of the kidneys and the bladder would be a step in the right direction.
Once we know the cause of the dilation, we will know whether it causes scarring or not. Scarring is a complication of untreated hydronephrosis and it is unlikely that you are down this path.
Please see a urologist who can help you identify the nature of the obstruction.
