What can cause enlarged kidney?

As we all know, most healthy people have two kidneys which are bean-shaped organs that serve several essential regulatory roles at the same time and they can replace each other. When one kidney cannot work effectively, the other kidney will work harder so as to replace the damaged kidney’s job. Therefore, it has no obvious effects to the normal life and body health when patients have the only one kidney. In order to guarantee the complete kidney function, the one healthy kidney will enlarge in its size when it do the compensatory work. In severe condition, once one kidney cannot afford the huge workload, it is more likely to lead to Kidney Failure. And healthy risks will increases accordingly.
