Ultrasound of both kidneys done. What is the overall condition?

I got my ultrasound done yesterday which revealses that, both kidneys are normal in shape and size with mild increased cortical echogenicity in the right kidney and generalised increased cortical echogenicity in the left kidney. There is no evidence of any mass lesion, hydronephrosis or calculus disease. The renal parenchymal thicknesss is normal in both kidenys. The right kidney measures 10.8x3.9 cms. and the left kideny measures 11.8x5.7 cms. Now I want to know the overall conditions of my kidneys?

Thanks for writing to HCM

Findings suggest that probably you are suffering from renal parenchymal disease. Increased echogenicity in both kidneys indicates towards this. You need proper history taking and investigations like complete renal function test.
Measurement of your both kidneys are normal.
you should consult your urologist for the problem.
