Back/Flank Pain (Renal Colic)

There are a few very specific reasons for back/flank pain. One of the most common reasons is the presence of urinary calculi. When the pain is from this source, it is often associated with renal colic. This term is a bit misleading as colic suggests a coming and going of pain, yet with this diagnosis the pain will typically remain constant. When the onset of flank pain is acute and goes down to the groin area, symptoms include vomiting and/or nausea. There are several other reasons for flank pain including pyelonephritis, appendicitis, diverticulitis, acute nephritis, ulcer disease, kidney disease and renal vein thrombosis. This type of pain is quite common in both men and women and can be treated properly once a workup has been done, and a diagnosis provided.
