Kidney Enlargement is medically known as hydronephrosis and it is a condition that arises when one or both kidneys retain fluid and swell due to poor emptying of fluid from the urinary tract. When a person develops hydronephrosis, they may start having some uncomfortable symptoms and if care is not taken, the kidney affected may develop more complicated issues and could even fail.
In this article in line with a publication on Medical News Today, we are going to have a look at the parts of the body you may feel pain due to kidney enlargement. If you start feeling pain in the areas going to be discussed in this piece, then there is a chance your kidney is problematic and the earlier you get checked, the better for you.
What Are The Parts Of The Body you May Feel Pain?
1. Dull or serious pain in your back - this often happens in your sides directly under the ribcage in the abdomen. If you start feeling constant pain that often comes in waves in your back even when you have not engaged in any strenuous activity, then there may be need to see doctor.
2. Accumulation of fluid in the legs, a condition known as edema. It arises when the kidneys don't function as well as they should thus leading to poor water removal from the body and when this water fails to leave the body, they collect in the lower legs leading to a condition known as edema.
