Polyp on my kidney?

An_252113 posted:
I had a UTI and didn't finish my antibiotics, next thing my lower back started hurting extremely bad with occasional sharp pains. It was only on the left side. Doctor gave me antibiotic because felt it was a kidney infection. The antibiotics didn't help. I was seen at the ER where they did an ultra sound and I was told that I have a polyp on my kidney. They didn't say much about it, didn't tell me if I need to be seen by a specialist...needless to say they were far from helpful. I guess I'm just looking for anybody who might know about polyps on the kidneys. I am waiting to get into a doctor to be seen. Any information would be helpful! Thanks!
