Why Would One Kidney Be Larger Than the Other?

Answer

One kidney would be larger than the other due to genetics, kidney damage, or diseases like glomerulonephritis. It is possible for someone to live a normal life with one small kidney. There is no need to remove a small kidney as long as it is performing 25% of kidney functions.
