How are you? An ectopic kidney is a birth defect wherein the kidney is located in an abnormal position. When a kidney is not in its position, there are possible complications such as infection, stones, kidney failure, and increased risk of injury from blunt trauma. If your urinary function is normal and the doctor finds no blockage, no treatment for ectopic kidney is needed. However, regular follow-up for monitoring is recommended in case a change occurs. If you are feeling kidney symptoms, have this checked for further evaluation and management.
Take care and do keep us posted.
