10 years Old With Complex Renal Cyst

My 10 years old son has been diagnosed with complex renal cyst? Is it serious? What should I do deal with that? Please help me.

The Doctor Answered:

10 years Old With Complex Renal CystRenal cysts occur in a variety of genetic diseases in adults and children. That is to say, if any member in your family have been diagnosed with complex renal cyst, your child has high chance of this disease. Complex renal cyst can also be caused by gene mutation, infections or some toxins. You should consult your nephrologist to find the real cause.

Then come to the treatments. If the renal cyst is small (normally less than 3cm ) and cause no symptoms, you do not need to take special treatment. A regular test to monitor the growth of the cyst is OK.

However, if your child is suffering some symptoms such as kidney pain, high blood pressure, protein or blood in the urine, frequent urine or urgent urine, you should let your doctor know immediately and take proper treatment.

What’s more, when the cyst becomes large, it will also attack other organs or systems, leading to some complications like high blood pressure, sleep quality, digestive problems or skin issues.

I am sure you do not want to give your child large quantities of drugs. Then, you can let him try Hot Compress Therapy and Enema. This is more natural for children.

I hope this can help you. Any questions, please email to Best wishes!
