Surgery is especially effective for big cysts that grow in the outter part of kidney. It treats kidney cyst by draining the cystic fluid and then inject some alcohol to dry the cystic wall. This can remove kidney cyst radically, but clinical experiments show when big kidney cysts are removed, small kidney cyst enlarge quickly as there is enough space for them to grow up. Besides, symptoms like high blood pressure and protein in urine can not be remitted eternally.

Chinese medicine is a conservative treatment. Differently from surgery, it treats multiple kidney cyst by shrinking kidney cyst. Kidney damages are caused as these large cysts put pressure on kidney tissues and make them unable in working. Therefore, shrinking kidney cyst also help to prevent further kidney damages. Besides, with Chinese medicines, blood pressure can be decreased and protein in urine can be reduced effectively. But compared with surgery, Chinese medicine works slowly.
