11*10 cm Complex Renal Cyst in Left Kidney

I am 65 years old and I have a complex renal cyst in left kidney that is 11*10 cm. Now, my creatinine and BUN level are still normal but the cyst is filled with debris. Need your advise on treatment.

The Doctor Answered:

Firstly, we should know complex renal cyst is much more severe than simple renal cyst, let alone large complex renal cyst. Since your complex cyst develops in left kidney and has become as big as 11*10 cm, you may have a high risk of kidney cancer. Therefore, effective treatments are needed urgently, in order to prevent kidney cancer or other severe conditions.

The detailed treatment should depend on the size and location of complex renal cyst. If your cysts are in the outer part of kidneys, it is relatively easy to deal with. Surgery and herbal medicines are two common remedies. Part removal of kidneys may be done, when complex renal cysts are calcified. Herbal medicines aim to prompt the reabsorption of sac fluid and inhibit the secretion of sac fluid, so as to shrink complex renal cyst. Herbal medicines can shrink kidney cyst without damaging kidney tissues and side effects, but they need relatively a long time.

If your complex renal cyst develops in the inner part of kidney, it is more difficult to deal with. The detailed treatment should depend on patients’ specific condition, and you are recommended to describe your condition to the online doctor, so he can help you decide which treatment is suitable for you.
