Can I Eat Radishes If I Have 9.5 cm CystA 9.5 cm kidney cyst is so big that it must damage the renal tissues when it presses nearby organs. Can I eat radishes if I have 9.5 cm cyst?

Foods for 9.5 cm kidney cyst

First of all, person with such a big kidney cyst should avoid spicy foods and alcohol. Mustard, hot peppers, garlic, ginger and curry is not allowed for patients.

Secondly, when the 9.5 cm presses kidneys, it narrows the blood vessels, resulting in ischemia and anoxia of renal tissues. With time goes by, these tissues start fibrosis. If these nephrons are damaged, kidney function decreases. In that case, patients need to reduce sodium, protein, potassium or phosphorous intake.

Raw radish contain rich potassium and should be taken with limitation. You can send your blood test report to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will give you reply in 24 hours.

Treatment for 9.5 cm kidney cyst

If you ask your doctor, he or she may suggest you to take surgery. This is to drain the cyst fluid out to shrink kidney cyst. Even though surgery can relieve symptoms fast but cannot solve the underlying problem. Why?

The reason why kidney cyst keeps growing is that the cyst epithelial cells are active to secrete fluid. Surgery cannot inactive these cells, so kidney cyst will be filled again within 6 months to 2 years.

In that case, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs. On one hand, the effective ingredients can inhibit cyst epithelial cells from secreting fluid any more, thus stopping kidney cyst growth. On the other hand, traditional Chinese herbs can increase blood circulation so that fluid can be reabsorbed into blood vessels and discharged by kidneys as urine.
