24 year old male with kidney sizes both just a bit over 10cm on ultrasound?

Is that too small for kidneys? All my blood levels are within normal limits.

Normal kidney size in an adult is 9-13 cm in length, but this can vary with patient's age, sex, ethnicity, and height.

I know they say men typically are at least 11cm but both of mine are only 10.3 ish if I heard her right. I’m 5’9 138lb male
Your kidney size is within the range of 9-13 cm and hence within normal limits. Hope that alleviates your concerns.

Hello and thank you for the question.  That is probably fine but we suggest you speak to your doctor about this.  Normal would be 11 cm and this is just 1 cm under.  Also, it is important to work on anxiety from a medical stand point.
