I have recently been diagnosed with a calcification on the top of the left kidney. The doctor said it is something he sees in patients who have had injury to their back or kidney and I have had neither. He said that this could also be what has been causing my frequent bladder infections, but won't know unless we do surgery to remove it. I am terrified of surgery, and am wondering if this is the right route to go. It can't be removed like a kidney stone cuz it is not a stone blocking the kidney or anything else. Kidneys are working perfectly, I have no back pain and haven't had a bladder infection since August.
Is this normal route to take to remove this?
