Cysts in Kidney : When to Be Concerned

2014-08-05 06:35

Cysts in Kidney : When to Be ConcernedCysts, or abnormal pockets of fluid filled sacs, are commonly found on imaging studies like ultrasounds that are done on the kidney. I often heard that people with renal cyst ask: When should I be concerned about the renal cyst? If you also have this kind of question, you can find the answer in this article.

Dangerous size of renal cyst

Normally, if the size of the cysts are less than 3cm, they are harmless and cause no symptoms. However, when the cyst is more than 3-5cm, they becomes symptomatic. Then, you may experience some discomforts such as back pain, flank pain, abdominal pain, protein or blood in the urine. Some complications may also occur like high blood pressure, urinary tract infection, kidney stone and intracranial aneurysm.

Well then, does it mean that you should be concerned when the cyst is over 3-5cm? No. It will be late if you start to concern when symptoms occur. You should take care of yourself when you are diagnosed with renal cyst.

What should I do when I am diagnosed with renal cyst?

If the cyst is small and asymptomatic, you do not need any treatment, but keeping a healthy diet is very necessary. Spicy, greasy and salty foods are NOT good for you. Meanwhile, alcohol and tobacco can stimulate the growth of renal cyst.

Not only diet but also exercise should be your concern, avoiding strenuous activities is always required.

Besides, annual or semiannual regular test to monitor the size of the renal cyst should be taken by your doctor.

If the cyst is more than 3-5cm, you have to care about. Medication or surgery may be needed to shrink or remove the cysts. Yet, both the two methods have some side effects that may cause further renal damage. To shrink renal cyst naturally, you are recommended to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
