The renal pyramid.
The symptoms are different for different patients. They include : �ۢHematuria, Pain in the flank, Noticeable mass, Weight loss, Fatigue, Loss of appetite, Fevers, Night sweats , Malaise, Anemia.
A growth on the kidney in various sizes that can be benign or malignant.
A T2 hyperintense right renal lesion is a mass found on the right kidney. It could be a simple cyst or indicative of a tumor.
The role of this covering is to support the mass of the kidneys as well as provide protection for the delicate tissues of the kidneys.

ineffective airway clearance related to tumor mass in the trachea
I never think mass production of anything is a good thing. Think recalls. Then, again the nursing shortage is severe, particularly in Louisiana, where I live. There were a lot of good nursing candidates, when I was in college for nursing, that did not make it for purely subjective reasons. I think if the curriculum is sound that it could go a long way in getting quality RN's out and doing the best for the community...Rhonda RN, BS
The simple renal cyst is a benign non-neoplastic mass of unknown etiology arising in renal parenchyma (cortical cyst) or within the sinus region (parapelvic cyst). The uncomplicated cyst cavity is typically unilocular, usually filled with clear serous fluid and lined with a cuboidal epithelium with no communication to the renal collecting system. It's believed that these cysts arise from tubular or lymphatic obstruction. The incidence of renal cysts increases with age occurring rarely in neonates and the pediatric group, to over 50% in those over age 50.The simple renal cortical cyst or parapelvic cyst is discovered incidentally so it's important to differentiate it from a true renal neoplasm. Renal cysts account for 60-65% of all renal masses. Large cortical cysts can show up as a palpable flank mass and parapelvic cysts can be detected producing extrinsic compression or mass effect on the collecting system on an intravenous pyelography (IVP) exam. Renal cysts are rarely associated with conditions like tuberous sclerosis, von Hippel-Lindau disease, neurofibromatosis, or Caroli's disease. In most of these cases, the systemic condition already exists prior to the discovery of the renal cysts. Atypical renal cell carcinomas can develop as a complex cystic mass, although its appearance on US, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is easily differentiated from a simple cyst. The parapelvic cyst appears on US as a medially located cystic mass with surrounding echogenic walls since it's located within the fatty renal sinus. Keep in mind that multiple cysts can be confused with generalized or even localized hydronephrosis. Look for a lack of central communication between the cysts as a distinguishing feature. With hydronephrosis, the dilated calyces are seen to coalesce centrally like the fingers of a glove as they connect to the renal pelvis and proximal ureter. If the differentiation isn't clear on US, an IVP or CT exam can help with the diagnosis. If the radiologist is confident that the central renal cystic mass or masses represent parapelvic cysts and the finding is completely incidental, then no further imaging followup or investigation is necessary.
