What Does This Renal Scan Indicate?

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.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your renal scan show that you are having renal stone in left kidney which is not causing any obstruction in urinary flow, there is nothing serious in this report except a harmless renal stone, no chance of having any renal cancer in this report, if you are not having any lower back pain or recurrent UTI then i would suggest you to get let it go and get your ultrasound repeat after 3 months to see if the renal stone has increased in size or causing and obstruction.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
