  • It's probably not a stone, because stones pass thru the kidney causing lots of pain and sometimes damage. People can get cysts on their kidneys and well as benign (non-cancerous) tumors. Here is a website that describes the different types of benign tumors. hopefully it's nothing more than a cyst or a benign tumor, good luck. Feel free to PM me if you have anymore questions. My husband has a kidney disease, not tumors, but i'm pretty familiar with kidney troubles.
