Urinary Disorders

Red Spots in Kidney

02/03/2009

Question:

I have had severe left kidney pain with blood in urine for 4 months. They finally went in to look at the inside of my kidney and found over 20 red spots of varying size that look almost like burns or hives but they are dark red. My urologist has never seen this before so it has me quite nervous. I was curious if this has been seen before, and if it has, what it could be? Thank you in advance for any information.

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness. It is difficult to speculate what the red spots represent. Without actually seeing them or having a biopsy report. Sorry I can not comment further.
