Hydronephrosis.
Hydronephrosis is the stretching and dilation of the collecting system in the kidney. This typically is the result of a blockage in the ureter such as a kidney stone that prevents urine from draining into the bladder. As the hydronephrosis worsens and more pressure is applied onto the functioning portions of the kidney, normal kidney function can be damaged and may cause infection, pain or bleeding.
