Is Kidney Cyst a Big Problem of HealthIf you do not know what kidney cyst is, you may be worried about this condition. Well then, is kidney cyst a big problem if health?

What is kidney cyst?

Kidney cyst is a round pouch filled with liquid or blood. They can form in any part of the kidneys, such as cortex parenchyma or parapelvic. There are two types: simple and complex kidney cyst.

Simple kidney cyst

Simple kidney cyst has a regular lining of cyst wall. A simple kidney cyst has no risk of becoming a kidney cancer and is therefore nothing to worry about. Indeed, by the time a person is 50 years old, there is an approximately 35% chance that he or she will have a simple cyst.

Complex kidney cyst

Complex kidney cyst has irregularities within the walls of cyst. Having many or thick walled septations may suggest that the cyst is more likely to be associated with a kidney cancer.

Therefore, whether you should worry about a kidney cyst, you need to define the type of kidney cyst.

Symptoms of kidney cyst

No matter which type of kidney cyst is, it can cause some symptoms when it becomes very big and press nearby organs. Possible symptoms of a kidney cyst include:

-Back pain, flank pain or abdominal pain

-Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

-Blood in urine (hematuria)

-High blood pressure

-Impaired renal function (rare)

-Urinary tract infection (UTI)

Treatment for a kidney cyst

There are some medicines for relieving symptoms by shrinking cyst. I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs, which are more natural than over-the-counter medicines. They can expand the blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus inactivating the epithelial walls of cyst to secret more fluid. In addition, these herbs can protect the remaining renal function. Welcome your consultation!
