Medical Treatment for Shrinking 6 cm Renal Cyst

I have a 6 cm renal cyst on the outer side of my right kidney. The sac is full of fluid. Pain is becoming more severe. Is there a medical treatment to shrink this sac?

The Doctor Answered:

Medical Treatment for Shrinking 6 cm Renal CystThank you for your inquiry. I'd like to send you some related information and possible treatment for your condition.

In general, if kidney cyst is more than 4 cm, you should do a medical treatment to treat it. Your doctors may recommend you do surgery. Though surgery therapy can excise the larger cyst but can not remove the smaller cyst from the root. The cyst will grow quickly after surgery.

For 6 cm kidney cyst, another medical treatment you can consider. That’s the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Therapy.

This medical treatment includes seven therapies: cycle therapy, hot compress therapy, foot bath therapy, full bath therapy, enema therapy, oral Chinese medicine therapy, moxibustion therapy. Each therapy has its’ own different effects on body.

Hot Compress Therapy is one of them. With the help of osmosis device, the active ingredient can permeate into the kidney area. This therapy has the function of extending blood vessels, increasing the permeability of capsule wall, cleaning the toxins, repairing renal lesion and shrinking the cyst. It is indeed your ideal therapy.
