Ok, my daughter is now 2yrs3mths, when i was 15wks pregnant they found she had renal dilation in both kidneys, this continued for the rest of my pregnancy and when she was born she seemed healty and was urinating fine so they did not test or do u/s on her. She was also born with a skin tag on her right ear which the drs were not concerned about and left it, i am just pregnant again and decided to find out about skin tags and what cause's them etc, to see if this new baby might end up with it too. After some reading i found articles stating that there is a link between skin tags and Kidney problems, i'm now concerned that my daughter may end up having problems with her kidneys. Shes seems perfectly healthy but did get a couple of urine infections when she was little. Should i contact my dr and get some testing done or let it go as she seems healthy now, my concern is for the future. Thanks
