Dear experts,
My fetus (23w plus 4d) went through a Doppler ultrasound scan for eliminating the probable abnormality, the report shows there was an no echo area approx. 14mm*13mm*19mm in his right kidney, no other tissue abnormal in this kidney and the left.
How reliable could this report be and how much the possibility of this is just a single kidney cyst incident as I also learned the early stage kidney forming problem could be the sign of another type of serious kidney inherited disease call Polycystic kidney disease.
Could any expert here give me a quick assess of how serious this sort of diagnosis could be? Thanks much in advance!!!
