Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)

Enlarged left kidney in 11 year old

03/18/2008

Question:

My 11 year old daughter has been having serious pain on the left side abdomen. The urine test showed some blood in her urine and the ultrasound shows the left kidney is bigger then the right. They plan to do a CT scan, but what could be the possible causes of this? The only real symptoms she has had is the pain and usually worse only after she eats.
