i have the extra kidney on beside the left one i find it so strange when i bend to do something i feel as something rubbing

HI

It is a very rare condition to have super numery kidney, but it doesnot need any specific treatment unless it is causing trouble like pain , fever, urinary infections etc.

So if it is asymptomatic , you can leave it alone.
