Could you please post the CT scan here or exact language about the kidney lesions on CT scan?

I don't have that information. The hospitalist just mentioned the lesions as he was dismissing me from the hospital. No one else had mentioned that. He said I needed to see my primary care physician and have it checked out. We have moved to a new community and as of yet do not have a new primary care physician. We will be doing that the first of the week. I was in Olathe Medical Center in Olathe, KS.

Lesions on the kidneys can be just scarring. This can happen due to;

1) Aging.

2) High blood pressure

3) Diabetes.

4) Infections.

5) Abdominal surgeries.

6) Medications.

These lesions are unlikely to be worrisome.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
