The normal kidney size of an adult human is about 10 to 13 cm long, about 5 to 7.5 cm wide and a thickness of about 3 to 4 cm.. Sometimes, the kidneys are not exactly the same in size. The left kidney is usually bigger. The kidneys develop at the same rate that the whole body develops, until physical growth stops at about 25-26.The weight of one kidney averages about 120-150 g. Any decrease in size is abnormal.
Take care and regards.
Our daughter is just back from hospital. It looks like her Right Kideny is bigger than her Left Kidney. Is this something to worry about. She has ha blood in urine for a number of years now - on and off again?
