Will I Need Surgery with A 8cm Renal Cyst

I have a 8cm cyst on kidney. Will I need surgery?

The Doctor Answered:

Will I Need Surgery with A 8cm Renal CystA 8cm kidney cyst is almost the size of a kidney, so it is indeed very big. Generally when kidney size is as big as 5cm, it can cause a series of problems, such as back pain, high blood pressure, infections or even kidney damage. If you also experience these problems, surgery should be done. The commonly used surgery for renal cyst includes retrograde intrarenal surgery, percutaneous kidney surgery, laparoscopy and cyst removal, etc. Because all surgeries are invasive, not all renal patients want to choose such a treatment.

Treatment for a 8cm kidney cyst without surgery

Here we suggest you to try a conservative treatment. It is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. When you receive treatment, you just lie on the bed. With the help of osmosis devices, active ingredients of medicine can be penetrated into kidneys and take effect. This treatment can speed up blood circulation and increase the pressure difference inside and outside, and then cyst fluid can be drawn out. After about one week’s treatment, your back pain will disappear. After about half month’s treatment, high blood pressure will come down. After about one month’s treatment, the big renal cyst will shrink. But you should keep on treatment for a period of time to reinforce the effect. However, this treatment is only available in China. If you want to try it, you may have to travel abroad.
