Management of Large Kidney Cyst on ChildKidney cyst is benign lesion which is characterized by fluid-filled sac on the kidneys. Kidney cyst can be divided into two types: Simple kidney cyst and complex cyst. Kidney cyst in common in adult, but is rare in children. When the cyst becomes large, it is symptomatic. Then, the patients find that they have kidney cyst. What is the management of large cyst on child?

Firstly, I have to ask what is the size of the cyst? Generally, if the cyst is less than 3cm and cause no symptoms, you do not need any treatment. Your child can live a normal life as other children. What you are required to do is to take a regular test to check the size of the cyst. Meanwhile, make your child develop a healthy diet. Try to make them avoid spicy and greasy foods.

What if the cyst becomes large, I mean, more than 3-5cm. Well, you are right to be concerned. If so, your child may be experiencing some symptoms like back pain, proteinuria, hematuria, high blood pressure, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting or urine changes. If he or she have any of those symptoms, you must tell your doctor to take immediate treatment. In that case, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove the large renal cyst.

Nowadays, there are two types of surgeries that are often used. Aspiration and Decortication are the two types. Firstly, during the process of aspiration, with the help of laparoscope, the doctor will use a needle to drain the cystic fluids. Then, inject the cyst with processed alcohol to make the cyst scared. Decortication is similar to Aspiration. The difference between them is that the cystic wall can be resected and peeled off thoroughly during Decortication.

Yet, neither Aspiration nor Decortication is the best way to shrink the large renal cyst. Another natural and effective method is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicine and has overcome the disadvantages of surgery such as infection and recurrence of cyst. Wannna more information, contact with our doctor online.
