As we know there are many different causes of lower right back pain, and one of them is a kidney disease. So, if you experience this kind of pain should you worry about it? The common advise is: watch your pain, I mean, you can see how long it lasts and even try to identify its possible causes. Often a disproportional load on back muscles or bad posture kept for an extended period of time may be the cause of the back pain on the right side; yet if the pain persists or you just do not see any other cause, it is recommended to see a doctor without much delay.
The whole idea is to get treated as soon as possible in the case of any severe condition such as kidney disease. If your back pain doesn’t go away it is a sign to get a professional help; otherwise you may end up suffering from kidney stones (urolithiasis), pyelonephritis, uronephrosis, nephroptosis and renal failure. You can read more about them on American Kidney Fund website.
