How Serious Is 1.4 cm Renal Cortical Cyst with CalcificationA renal cortical cyst is very common, especially among people who are over 50 years old. Well then, how serious is 1.4 cm renal cortical cyst with calcification?

Calcification of kidney cyst

There are two types of kidney cyst: simple and complex kidney cyst. A simple cortical cyst usually causes no symptoms. Some people may even live with a simple renal cortical cyst without finding it.

Yet, a complex renal cortical cyst may be calcified. This means that the mineral calcium is visualized inside of the cyst. There may be very little calcium, or the calcifications may be quite thick. It is not so serious if the calcification is very thick.

Possible symptoms of 1.4 cm renal cortical cyst

In general, 1.4 cm renal cortical cyst is asymptomatic, causing no discomforts for patient. However, some patients with small kidney cyst have problems and asking us about the treatment. The possible symptoms of 1.4 cm renal cortical cyst include back pain, side pain, abdominal pain, blood in urine or urinary tract infection. If so, patients should take immediate treatment to control the growth of kidney cyst.

Treatment for 1.4 cm renal cortical cyst with calcification

First of all, medicines may be necessary if symptoms occur. Painkillers and antibiotics are prescribed to relieve pain and infection. Yet, patients with renal insufficiency should avoid them, because these medicines are nephrotoxic.

Secondly, drinking plenty of water can help flush the urinary tract and preventing or relieving urinary tract infection.

Last but not the least, to shrink kidney cyst from the root, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs. They can inactivate the epithelial cells of cyst walls, and then no more fluid will be secreted and kidney cyst growth can be controlled. What’s more, traditional Chinese herbs can improve blood circulation and enhance kidney function. Thereby, the waste, including cystic fluid can be discharged naturally.
