Are Multiple Renal Cortical Cysts Dangerous

My father has undergone ultrasound this morning and the results shows that he has bilateral few simple renal cortical cysts I want to know whether multiple renal cortical cysts are dangerous?

The Doctor Answered:

Renal cortical cysts refer to benign fluid-filled sac developing in the renal cortex than involves kidney functioning cells. Generally, our kidneys can still work normally with up to 5 isolated small renal cortical cysts, that is to say, it won’t threaten your father healthy condition if his cortical cysts are still quite small and less than 5.

However, you should pay attention if the largest kidney cysts are bigger than 4cm, because at this situation, the cysts will compress their surrounding kidney normal tissues in the renal cortex and cause damage. If left untreated timely, these cysts will become bigger and bigger to cause irreversible kidney damage. At the same time, more and more symptoms such as back pain, hematuria, proteinuria, high blood pressure, etc will occur, too.

In view of this, prompt treatment to shrink your father’s kidney cysts is very necessary. For elder people, we recommend conventional therapy that is painless and doesn’t have any side effect. Some herbal medicines have been proven to have such a benefit. Through drying up the sac fluid, these herbal medicines can shrink these renal cortical cysts gradually. However, the prescriptions change from case to case. To make sure your father can take correct treatment, you can send email to pkdclinic888@hotmail.comso I can give you some suggestions.
