Hole in my right kidney
I had a cystoscopy yesterday and my urologist said he saw a hole in my right kidney as well as polyps. What can this mean and what treatments will be necessary? I have a lot of swelling in my abdomin and a lot of abdominal pain.
Your urologist used a non medical term with you and I do not know what means either, so I suggest you ask him to explain his findings to you better than his first attempt.
