Bleeding Kidney Cysts: Cause and Treatment

2014-08-30 01:02

Bleeding Kidney Cysts: Cause and TreatmentBleeding kidney cysts are serious so that you should be concerned. I will share with you the causes and treatment about a hemorrhagic kidney cyst.


As you know, the cyst is progressive. When it enlarges to more than 3cm, it may start to compress the nearby tissues as well as the other cysts. There are tiny blood vessels on the wall of the cysts. When the blood vessels are under great pressure, they are likely to burst. Then you are diagnosed with bleeding kidney cyst.

Another cause may be the rupture of the kidney cyst. The contents inside the cyst is fluid that are like plasma. When they rupture, the fluid flow out. This condition is called “ hemorrhage”.

Without treatment, the cysts and other surrounding organs will get infected. If the blood is polluted by the fluid, patients may get sepsis, which is life-threatening.


1. Medicines: Actually, I do not want to recommend medicines to you because many of them are toxic for the kidneys. However, when you have sudden and severe symptoms like back pain, flank pain, repeated urinary tract infection, a high fever, you’d better take antibiotics to make them under control. You can consult you doctor for what medicines are right for you.

2. Surgery: When medicines do not work, you have to take surgery to drain or remove the bleeding cyst. Nowadays, aspiration and decortication are the two commonly used methods in clinic. Yet, surgery has a side effect, namely, the recurrence of the kidney cyst.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: It is based Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is used externally. Its effective ingredients cannot only shrink the kidney cysts but also can improve kidney function so as to prevent the recurrence of cyst.
