Symptoms and Treatment for a Simple Renal Cortical Cyst Measuring 16X13In general, a simple kidney cyst is benign and cause no symptoms. What’s more, 16 X 13 mm renal cortical cyst is so small that it is not so serious. Well, if you are indeed experiencing some problems, you can find answers and solutions from this article.

Symptoms of 16 X 13 mm simple renal cortical cyst

It is not common that such as small and simple cyst cause symptoms. If so, patients may have back pain, side pain, flank pain, blood in urine and urinary tract infection, etc.

In rare case, a simple kidney cyst will damage kidney function. You are suggested to take a regular test to check the growth of kidney cyst.

Tests for kidney cyst

Tests and procedures used to check simple kidney cysts include:

● Imaging tests. Imaging tests, such as an ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are often used to investigate simple kidney cysts. Imaging tests can help your doctor determine whether a kidney mass is a cyst or a tumor.

● Kidney function tests. Testing a sample of your blood may reveal whether a kidney cyst is impairing your kidney function.

Treatment for 16 X 13mm simple renal cortical cyst

If the cyst cause no symptoms, the doctor may tell you that you need no treatment. However, as you know, the cyst will grow with age or due to some other factors. If you leave it along, you have to take surgery to drain the fluid out eventually.

Therefore, it is better for you to take early methods to get rid of it. In that case, I recommend you to take natural Chinese herbs. The properties of the medicines can inhibit the epithelial cells of cystic walls so that no more fluid will be secreted. In addition, Chinese herbs can improve blood circulation and protect kidney function. That’s why they are natural for kidney cyst patients.
