Potential

A bruised kidney may be asymptomatic if the healthy kidney resumes normal function, or may result in chronic symptoms of weight loss, fatigue, constipation and irritability.

Warning

Severe kidney bruising due to inflammation or injury may cause abdominal and back pain, bloody or cloudy urine, nausea, vomiting, painful urination and fever, signifying an emergency.

Effects

Sharp and sudden side pangs within the lower abdomen may be accompanied by painful or frequent urination, chills and fever, indicating a kidney infection, stone or bruised kidney, requiring treatment.

Considerations

Signs and symptoms of kidney bruising necessitate medical attention, as kidney function is needed for filtering fluids and wastes in prevention of toxicity and vital organ damage.

Identification

Doctors conduct exams looking for signs of hemorrhaging, tenderness or shock, with blood tests, imaging tests, abdominal and kidney scans and ultrasounds providing further assistance in diagnosing kidney bruising.
