TEST RESULTS

Dear Cyberdoc

If a Nephrologist suspected Analgesic nephrology or IGA nephrology or Basic Thin Membrane disease would the results of the resultant sonar completely exclude the above?

The sonar results reads:
The kidneys are normal in size, shape and position. Both measure approx 11cm in length. There is good cortico-medullary differentiation. No hydronephrosis or focal signs seen. Is this good for kidneys?

It also sasy incidental finding of a benign cyst in the right lobe of the liver measuring 10mm. How serious is this and would they remove it?

Prostate measures 30x41x40mm. Is this enlarged? He was treated for prostatis.

Pain over the kidneys persists. Could the prostate or liver cause this pain?

Doc, please be sure to answer each question.

Thank you very very much

Dear Gemma
No, Analgesic nephrology or IGA nephrology or Basic Thin Membrane disease can only be diagnosed with kidney biopsy. The cyst is not really something to worry about. It is small enough to leave alone. The size of the prostate will depend on how big a person he is - should be around as big as a plum or walnut so this sounds a little bit enlarged. Liverpain would be on Right hand side in front, prostate pain would be "down there".
Have they excluded kidney stones?
Do you know if they checked his Aorta when they did the Sonar?
