Kidney Problems - Overview

Overview | Causes | Diagnosis | Treatment | FAQ

Your kidneys filter waste and excess fluid that your body does not need. Their function is essential for good health. Many kidney conditions may be painful, even life-threatening. Many treatment options and methods of prevention are available. If you find that you experience many symptoms of kidney problems, you should make an appointment to see a urologist.

Symptoms

  • Sudden onset of shaking, chills and a fever of more than 102 degees Fahrenheit
  • Constant ache in the side
  • Burning sensation when you urinate
  • Urinating often
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea and vomiting

Possible Kidney Problems

  • Kidney Infection - A kidney infection occurs when bacteria in the bladder spreads into the ureters and kidneys. Repeated infections can cause kidney damage and, later, kidney failure.

  • Kidney Stones - A clump of crystals of un-dissolved material in the urinary system is a stone. There are many substances that can make up a stone. A stone blocking the urinary system can be painful and dangerous.

  • Kidney Failure - When the kidneys are not able to cleanse wastes from the body, fluid and chemical imbalance occurs. This imbalance can lead to fluid retention, swelling, irregular heartbeat and death.

  • Kidney Cancer - The most common kidney cancers are renal cell carcinoma, Wilm’s tumor, transitional cell carcinoma, oncocytoma, and angiomyolipoma.
