Kidney stone, dilated ureter in ULTRASOUND. Treatment.

Resolved Question:


Yesterday I went to the doctor for a regular check-up and got seriously scared away with the results. I was passed on to the urologist but since it is quite scary, I wanted to talk to somebody for further information.

During the sonography I was found the following (hope I can translate it more or less accurately). Kidneys: shape, size, structure of the norm, in the right upper part a stone of 3-4mm. The left kidney renal cup enlarged. Ureter could be observed in upper and mid third part in width up to 7 mm.

Is this the indicative of cancer?

I have had for years stones in both kidneys with no problems at all. I had a CT scan 5 months ago for another reason and then all the kidneys were all fine. Just the 4 mm stone in the upper right kidney and a 8 mm one in the left lower kidney.

Now the left one has somehow disappeared. Could there be any connection between this 8 mm stone and the new find of the left kidney in the ultrasound?

I do not have sharp pains what I understand is common when the stones are moving. However a few nights I have had a discomfort in lower abdomen around the pelvic area and somewhat mild discomfort on the left and at the back. Nothing unbearably though, certainly can not be called as pain.

I could not change the data below which is wrong. I am 40 and male and the two references are not connected with this question.

With best regards
