15mm Renal Cortical Cyst: Is It Serious

2015-02-22 07:31

15mm Renal Cortical Cyst: Is It SeriousRenal cortical cyst is a common type of kidney cyst. However, many people have no idea about it and ask me whether it is serious. Well, 15mm renal cortical cyst is not thought to be large, but some precautions should be taken.

Make dietary changes

First of all, you’d better stay away from alcohol and tobacco. They can stimulate the growth of kidney cyst. In addition, spicy and greasy foods like hot pepper, chili, mustard and fresh onions, etc.

Prevent from infection

Infection is the most common factor causing enlargement of kidney cyst. Upper respiratory infection (URI), urinary tract infection (UTI), gastrointestinal tract infection or skin infection are common dangerous factors. You should avoid over-tiredness because it can lower your immunity and make you easy to be affected by infections.

Drinking plenty of water is helpful for preventing or relieving infections.

Avoid nephrotoxic medicines

Do not use medicines without discussing with your doctor, since some medicines are nephrotoxic.

Chinese herbal tea

Some Chinese herbs can be taken to relieve or prevent some symptoms. Dandelion tea, nettle leaf, uva ursi, corn silks and poria cocos are usually used for relieving swelling, back pain, flank pain, nausea and infections.

Hot Compress Therapy

This therapy is based on traditional Chinese herbs and has been used for centuries. The medicines are micronized and packed into hot bags. The heat can expand blood vessels, so as to promote Qi and improve blood circulation. By applying it on Shenshu (an acupoint on kidney area), this therapy can help the kidneys discharge of cystic fluid with enough blood and oxygen.
