Will 5mm Kidney Cyst Cause Any Symptoms

2014-06-30 03:32

Will 5mm Kidney Cyst Cause Any SymptomsIn general, if patients are diagnosed with 5mm kidney cyst, the doctor will tell them not to worry about this result, because the size of the cyst is so small. Treatment is required when the cyst is beyond 3-5cm. However, will 5mm kidney cyst cause any symptoms that need our concern? Yes, even a small cyst can cause some problem.

Possible symptoms of 5mm kidney cyst

1. Blood in urine

This situation is called “hematuria” in clinic. There are two types of hematuria: Gross hematuria and microscopic hematuria. As the 5mm kidney cyst is still small, it will not cause gross hematuria, so you will see “blood” under microscopic. Actually, the “blood” is red blood cells. If the number of red blood cells is more than 2, it indicates your kidneys have been affected by the cyst.

2. Flank pain

Normally, is the cyst is less than 3cm, it will not cause pain in the kidney area. However, there is an exception. If you indeed have flank pain, back pain or abdominal pain, you should have a CT test to check if there is an enlargement or infection of the cyst, because that may be the cause of pain.

To sum up, a regular test for people with kidney cyst is very necessary. If the test of the kidney function is normal, no treatment is needed, and you just need to have a rest and avoid tiredness. Meanwhile, keep a healthy diet, staying away from spicy and greasy foods. Alcohol and smoking are also bad for your health, but moderate red wine is OK. You’re better consult your doctor’s for advice.
