Hi. I had a cat scan and it claims my kidney is swollen. Told to watch it. I then had urine test and it came back with white blood cells in urine of 70. But no significant growth at a low number. I’m confused. I have had flank pain constant on my ride side to my back and now it’s elevating to my left side. Any opinions for me?

I am unable to make a specific diagnosis based on the information that you provide.  Your symptoms could be compatible with kidney infection, but also could be from many other causes.  I suggest that you discuss your concerns with your physician and determine the best course of action.
