Overview of kidney cyst

There are two types of kidney cyst: simple and complex kidney cyst. In general, a simple kidney cyst is asymptomatic, but it may press nearby tissues when it is larger than 5 cm. A complex kidney cyst is more serious than simple ones and should draw more attention.

Treatment for a large kidney cyst

Treatment goal of a kidney cyst including controlling symptoms and shrinking kidney cyst. Therefore, treatment for a large kidney cyst may include:

● Medicines: High blood pressure, back pain, and blood in urine are common symptoms. Medicines are given to relieve these symptoms. Consult your doctor what medicines are safe for your kidneys. Or you can contact with our doctors online directly.

Surgery is thereby necessary to shrink the kidney cyst. Laparoscopic decortication and percutaneous aspiration are commonly used methods to drain the fluid out of the cyst or cut off parts or entire cyst. In most case, the cyst will be filled again within 6 months and 2 years.

● Herbal remedies: In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, we mainly use traditional Chinese herbs. On one hand, they can inhibit the cyst epithelial cells from secreting fluid, thus stopping kidney cyst growth. On the other hand, they can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes to improve blood circulation. Then cyst fluid can be reabsorbed into blood vessels, so kidney cyst shrinks gradually.
