The scan revealed that the man had 3 kidneys, one on his left side and two fused kidneys located near the pelvis. He also had a herniated or ‘slipped’ disk which was the cause of back pain. herniated or ‘slipped’ disk. There are fewer than 100 cases reported in the medical history where the person has 3 kidneys.

The man meanwhile doesn’t need any medical attention for his extra kidney.
