What Are the Symptoms of Kidney Swelling

What Are the Symptoms of Kidney SwellingKidney swelling or big kidneys is not a independent kidney disease but is a symptom of certain underlying condition. What are the symptoms of kidney swelling? Here is the answer.

Symptoms of kidney swelling

There is a medical term of kidney swelling, called “hydronephrosis”. It is usually caused by blockage in urinary tract infection. When that happens, urine cannot flow to bladders, so the kidneys start to become swollen or enlarged.

The symptoms you have depend on how long you’ve had the obstruction. If you have hydronephrosis you could have mild symptoms like urinating more frequently and an increase in the urge to urinate. Other potentially severe symptoms you may experience are:

-pain in the abdomen or flank

-nausea and vomiting

-pain when urinating

-frequency of urination

-urgency of urination

-urinary tract infection (UTI)


If kidney swelling is along with urinary tract infection, patients may also have cloudy urine, painful urination, weak urine stream, back pain, etc.

However, the above symptoms can be caused by other factors. Therefore you are suggested to make a diagnosis.

Diagnosis of kidney swelling

-Urethra. The urethra is a tube that carries urine from your bladder to the outside of your body. This is to see whether there is obstruction in the urinary tract.

-Imaging tests. Your doctor may also want to perform an ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) scan to have a closer look at the extent of the swelling and to possibly locate the area of the blockage.
