What is simple kidney cortical cyst?

Simple kidney cysts normally cause no symptoms and patients need no treatments to deal with them. The cysts grow with age and some of the patients who are more than 50 are diagnosed with simple kidney cysts in one or two kidneys. People with simple renal cysts often have a good prognosis unless the cysts are too large.

What is the normal size of kidney cyst?

In clinic, if the cysts are smaller than 3-5cm, no treatments are needed. Patients just keep a healthy diet and a regular test to prevent the cysts from enlarging. Because if the cyst grows too large, they may rupture, which is the worst result. Therefore, a simple cortical cyst with 4.2*3.7cm is likely to rupture especially when the patients are injured in the kidney area or get infected.

How to manage enlarged renal cortical cysts?

The basic way to avoid renal cysts rupturing is to shrink the cysts. The traditional way is to apply surgery to drain the fluids in the cysts. However, after removing of big cysts, small cysts will have a rapid growth due to the reduced pressure in the kidneys. What’s more, surgery cannot solute the root cause.
