Extra Ureter affects on kidney & urine flow

I have an extra ureter on one of my kidney. I don't have a history of kidney stones and UTI are very few. My concerns are my kidney and bladder. Is the extra ureter overworking my kidney? Is the extra ureter adding 1/3 more urine into the bladder causing more trips to the bathroom. I do go oftern. I am 40 years old. Should I have the ureter removed?
