An MRI detected this lesion and I am getting an Ultrasound asap. What are the implications...what is the treatment and prognosis. I can't find any explanation of this condition on the internet. Please let me know asap as I just got this info today and am very concerned.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  A lesion is an area that has been identified as abnormal tissue. The problem is, without further testing and diagnosis a kidney lesion can mean anything from "nothing to worry about" to "very serious". A kidney lesion can either be benign or malignant.  Hyperintense lesions are bright, white spots shown on certain types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.

Best,

Daisy
