2013-07-16 10:09

For eld people especially ones over age 50, simple renal cyst is very common and it can arise in renal cortex (cortical cysts) or within the sinus region (parapelvic cyst). Today, we mainly talk about renal cortical cyst cause and treatment.

With age, the incidence of renal cortical cyst raises. According to the research, 50% of people above age 50 have one or more simple kidney cyst, while 90% of people above age 70 have this disorder. In addition, male patients are more than female patients. Therefore, we can know age and male are the main risks for renal cortical cyst.

What is renal cortical cyst treatment?

If your renal cortical cyst is smaller than 3cm and you don’t have any complications such as high blood pressure, proteinuria, hematuria and back pain, you don’t need any specific treatment expect a scientific diet, moderate exercise and regular examination. However, if your renal cyst is bigger than 3cm or you have already had some symptoms, you have to accept some treatments to control your condition.

Surgery is often used to remove the big renal cortical cyst to reduce the pressure on kidney tissues.
