What Type of Tests Are Required in Kidney CystsA regular test for people is very necessary, because many underlying diseases show no signs in the early stages. A regular test can help your illness condition can take right measures to slow down or prevent the progression. What types of tests are required in kidney cysts? In general, you are asked to take tests as follows:

1. Ultrasound

This is always the first required test for kidney cyst. Ultrasound can help you learn about the number, size, condition of cyst walls.

2. A urine test

It is used to check whether there is protein or blood in the urine. If the cyst grows too large, it will compress the renal tissues and cause kidney damage. As a result, proteinuria or/and hematuria can be seen.

3. CT

If a kidney cysts cannot be confirmed, a CT (computerized tomography) scan can help your doctor determine whether a kidney mass is a cysts or a tumor.

4. Kidney function test

It can also be called a blood test, which is to check your serum creatinine and BUN (blood urea nitrogen) levels. If the levels is higher than normal ranges, they always indicate that the cysts have cause more than 50% kidney function loss.


If the cysts are benign and small, no special treatment is needed.

How ever, if the cysts enlarge to more than 3-5cm and cause symptoms like back pain, flank pain, abdominal pain, proteinuria, hematuria, high blood pressure, kidney stones or cysts on other organs, immediate treatments should be taken by you or your doctor.

Medications and surgeries that the doctor normally recommend can indeed help you have a relaxing time, but it is not the case in China.
