A Cyst on Kidney, Big As a Grapefruit: Can This Be a Simple CystA grapefruit size kidney cyst? Wow, it is so big. Well, can this be a simple cyst.

What is simple kidney cyst?

A kidney cyst is a closed pouch or sac filled with air or liquid. Simple kidney cysts are usually small round sacs that have a thin wall and are filled with a watery fluid. As people get older, cysts can form on the surface or in the nephrons of the kidneys. They can range in size from a small pea to as large as a grapefruit. Cysts can also grow over time.

Who gets simple kidney cyst?

More than half of people will get at least one kidney cyst after 50 years of age and older. Most people have a simple cyst only in one kidneys, but the number of cysts and the risk of getting cysts in bilateral kidneys increase as time goes by.

What are the symptoms of simple kidney cysts?

Simple kidney cysts are usually benign and asymptomatic. In fact, most people who have them don’t know they have them. The cysts become a problem if they rupture (break open) and start to bleed, become infected, or grow so large that they push against other organs within the abdomen.

Some possible symptoms include:

● Pain in the flank (side between the ribs and hip), stomach, or back

● Fever

● Frequent urination (having to go the bathroom often)

● Blood in the urine, or dark urine

How to shrink kidney cyst?

To shrink kidney cyst usually require a surgery. However, surgery increase the risk of infection. Moreover, it cannot solve the underlying problem, leading to recurrence of kidney cyst within six months or one year.

Therefore, I recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which is an external application based on traditional Chinese herbs. Large kidney cyst can be shrunk by inactivating the epithelial cells on cyst wall and improving kidney function. This is can treat kidney problem from the root.
