I searched this topic, but this topic was not found. I have had some flank discomfort and urinary frequency. I thought I had a urinary tract infection, so they checked my urine... no infection. So, my doc ordered a kidney US, which showed a 5mm kidney stone. Then I had an xray that also showed a 5mm kidney stone. Then I had an IVP that showed no stones... the urologist said the 5mm "kidney stone" is actually a calcified lymph node outside of the kidney. Have any of you had or heard anything about calcified lymph nodes? My internet search is not turning up anything that really explains what that is and why it occurs. It was not present on my last CT scan in September...
