A: thanks for your consultation about your daughter’s condition. 12cm cyst is really quite large. The normal size of one kidney is about 10~12 cm. Your daughter’s cyst is as large as her kidney already.

Kidney cyst is known as silent killer. In other words, your daughter may feel no symptoms, even though the cyst has already affected the kidney functions. Obviously, your daughter has already got the signals from this large mass. You said she felt back pain and right under her left rib. Thereby, her condition may be more serious than others who shows no symptoms.

It is right to seek the treatments for her as soon as possible, because kidney cysts may cause kidney damage and develop into kidney failure eventually.

To remove the large kidney cyst, one or more of the following treatments may be suggested:

- surgery

- Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

- Acupuncture

Surgery helps remove the cyst directly, which can help deal with the large mass in a short time. But it may cause damage to kidneys. In certain case, surgery is not suggested due to the cyst location and size.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is relatively better than other choices for it uses herbs to shrink the cyst naturally. In addition, it helps repair the damaged kidney tissues. Thereby, it is known as “tonic-kidney” therapy.

Acupuncture is a therapy in which TCM practitioners use specif needles to stimulate acupoints to manage a better medical condition.
