In our daily life, renal cortical cyst with calcification isn’t very common, so many people don’t know why their cysts are calcified. Today, follow me to have an overview of this condition.

What does renal cortical cyst with calcification mean?

According to different characteristics, kidney cyst is divided into two classes: simple kidney cyst and complex kidney cyst. Simple kidney cyst is filled with watery liquid, sometimes red blood cells. Different from simple kidney cyst, complex kidney cyst may also be calcified. This means the mineral calcium may also appear in complex cyst. From this analysis, we can know renal cortical cyst with calcification is more likely to indicate complex cortical cyst.

Complex renal cortical cyst has two characteristics. On the one hand, it has irregular cyst lining and internal structure. The internal walls may divide complex kidney cyst into many parts. Within the walls, there are many irregularities. On the other hand, complex cortical cyst may have calcification.

These two characteristics give rise to the possibility that complex renal cortical cyst develops to kidney cancer, which may need surgical removal eventually. In order to prevent kidney cancer, the best treatment is to treat your renal cortical cyst as soon as possible.
