Enlarged Kidney can be caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), nephropyelitis, hydronephrosis, and cancer. Other factors that lead to swelling in the kidneys may also enlarge the kidneys. There are some signs of enlarged kidney.
Kidney infection or enlarged kidney cysts will injure renal tissues, leading to a painful feeling. In some cases, the pain will travel up to groin and abdomen. This painful feel is dull and appears occasionally. If the the kidney gets infected, it will become sharp and persistent.
The pain also may originate in the lower back or radiate out from the abdomen when the kidney is enlarged. When the outer covering of the kidney swells, it may lead to severe pain and may also lead to some digestive problems. Kidney stones can alco cause severe pain in the lower back. When a stone become lodged in the urinary tract, it can cause the kidney to enlarge and create pain that comes in waves, lasting from 20 to 30 minutes.
Swelling occurs when excessive fluid accumulate in the body. As the enlarged kidneys fail, fluids cannot be processed properly and begin to accumulate in the ankles, abdomen, lower back and face.
In some serious conditions, swelling may be painful.
