2013-06-22 08:08

Is Surgery A Must for 7cm Kidney CystMost simple kidney cysts originate from renal parenchyma, sometimes renal pelvis. Usually, they are smaller than 2cm and grow slowly. However, with age, patients’ cyst may grow bigger and bigger. When they grow to 7cm, doctor may recommend surgery. However, is surgery a must for 7cm kidney cyst?

Surgery for 7cm kidney cyst

7cm kidney cyst is enough big to compress its surrounding kidney tissues. If left uncontrolled, it will cause more severe kidney damage. If nephrons in renal parenchyma are impaired, kidneys may not play their filtration and reabsorption function optimally. As a result, urination changes, kidney cyst infection, back pain and high blood pressure may occur easily. These symptoms may urge patients to take some treatments to ease their symptoms as soon as possible.

Surgery is usually used to deal with large symptomatic cysts. For example, cyst aspiration and injection of sclerosant is a common type of surgery for kidney cyst. However, if your cyst is parapelvic cyst, you are recommended to avoid this surgery.

Here, we must affirm that surgery indeed can help remove fluid from the cyst and remit patients’ symptoms. However, this doesn’t mean all people with 7cm renal cyst should bear this painful treatment, because some alternative ways to surgery also have such an effect without any danger or pain.

Alternative to surgery for large kidney cyst

In recent years, more and more people with kidney cyst turn their focus on Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which show an outstanding benefit on shrinking patients’ cysts both large and small. Through increasing patients’ blood circulation and prompting the permeability of cystic walls, more and more sac fluid can be reabsorbed through cystic walls and then discharged from the body via blood circulation.

If your kidney cyst has grown to about 7cm, you don’t need to be frightened about the coming surgery because you have another choice. Before taking it, you can first learn more about it from the online doctor.
