Smaller right kidney, pain, retention, lobular right kidney, blood in urine. Cure?

hi, i just an ultrasound of my bladder and kidneys and am a bit nervous that my urologist told me that my right kidney was smaller and had an odd configuration . he told me that at 22 it was not normal to have the pain and retention i have been experiencing. i am having a low dose no contrast cat scan done tomorrow and got really nervous to read that the referral said lobular right kidney and a medical term for blood in the urine . is there something i should be concerned with?

Welcome to HCM.

Lobular kidney should be from birth usually.
The only thing thats important for health is to ensure that it is working normally (alteration in shape is not an issue if it is functioning)
The CT SCAN SHOULD GIVE A CLUE TO THE FUNCTION and the cause for the blood in urine.

wishing you good health
