Parapelvic cyst causes

Parapelvic cyst refers to the cyst developing in renal pelvis, which is responsible for collecting urine. Even though the exact causes of parapelvic cyst is still unknown, most parapelvic cysts are considered to due to congenital factors. In addition, age is also a big risk, because most patients have it after 50s.

Parapelvic cyst test

Once you are suspected to have this type of kidney cyst, you need to do more detailed test to see whether there are cysts developing in your pelvis, how many cysts you have, and whether your kidneys still work normally. Imaging tests and kidney function tests are two basic test items.

Imaging tests such as ultrasound, CT scan and MRI are often used to investigate simple kidney cysts. Imaging tests can help the doctor determine the position and characters of your cysts.

Kidney function tests, including creatinine, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), urea acid, etc, are used to show whether your kidney function is impaired by kidney cysts.

Parapelvic cyst treatments

Most parapelvic cysts are benign and harmless. In this case, you don’t need any specific treatment expect regular follow-up checks and healthy modifications of diet and lifestyle.

However, if one kidney cyst has become larger than 3cm or some complications like high blood pressure occurs, you should take correct treatment to avoid further kidney damage as soon as possible. At present, two treatment options, surgery and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, are widely used.
