"Water on the kidney" is the literal translation of the medical term hydronephrosis. That's a misnomer, however, because the condition has nothing to do with water. In hydronephrosis, there is often an obstruction in the ureter, bladder, or urethra that prevents urine from emptying out of the kidney. Pressure backs-up as a result, causing the kidney to swell with urine.

A common cause is a large kidney stone that prevents proper drainage of the kidney.
