Can Kidney Cysts Cause Side Pain

2014-07-15 03:58

Can Kidney Cysts Cause Side PainSide pain is a common symptom for patients with kidney cyst. When the kidney cyst is small, it won’t cause any symptoms and no treatment is needed. However, when the cyst becomes enlarged, it will compress the renal tissues and will cause nerve damage, so patients will fell side pain. There are some natural remedies to relieve side pain caused by kidney cyst, such as:

1. Shrinking kidney cyst

Firstly, you should keep a healthy diet that not will stimulate the cyst to grow. In general, avoid spicy and greasy foods are the first concern. Next, take limited salt and protein intake especially when you also have swelling or high blood pressure. At the same time, you should take enough vitamins and calories to ensure a good immunity in case of infection. Infection is a dangerous factor that may cause cystic infection which will damage the kidney further.

Secondly, doing moderate exercise to boost your immunity is also beneficial. However, since cyst is easy to rupture when receives some outside forces, you should be very careful that you won’t be injured during your exercise. Avoid strong activities is good for you to prevent you from getting rushes or collisions that will cause cyst rupture.

Thirdly, after you have provided a good environment of diet and exercise, you need medical therapy. Yet, I do not recommend you take over-the-counter drugs, because most of the medicines will produce wastes and toxins which will burden the kidneys. Here, I recommend you to try Hot Compress Therapy. This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicines and is used externally. Different from drugs taking orally, this therapy causes few side effects. In addition, the ingredients of the medicines can not only shrink kidney cyst but also improve kidney function. That is to say, your kidneys can repair themselves so that no more cysts will occur and side pain will disappear gradually.

2. Massage

A soft massage can help you to relieve your side pain, but you should be careful it will not compress your kidney area, because it will increase the risk of cyst rupture
