I had a partial nephrectomy in Nov 2010 for renal cell carcinoma. For the last 2.5 months I have had bad pain in that kidney. Had a CT scan done and it show "prominent papilla projecting into he upper pole calyx of the kidney. Recommend follow up ultrasound in 3 months to confirm stability" I have no idea what this means or if it is serious. Any ideas? I am scheduled for a ureteroscopy 9/12/12. No follow up ultrasound has been done as recommended by the radiologist.
