What Is Cortical Cyst in the Lower Pole of Left Kidney MeansA renal cortical cyst refers to a fluid-filled sac forming on the renal cortex, the outside region of the kidneys. Such as round pouch may occur in the upper pole, middle or lower pole of either kidney.

Is renal cortical cyst dangerous?

Whether a renal cortical cyst is dangerous has nothing to do with its location but the size and type of it.

There are two types of kidney cyst: simple and complex kidney cyst. In general, a simple kidney cyst is more common than complex ones. It usually causes no symptoms and needs no specific treatments. Yet, a complex kidney cyst show wall calcification and has risk of being cancerous.

Possible symptoms of a renal cortical cyst

Some people always complain the following problems caused by kidney cyst enlargement. If you are also bothered by them, please be free to contact with our doctor online.

-Back pain. This is the most common symptoms when kidney cyst presses nearby organs. The renal capsule is stretched, resulting in pain in the lower back, sides, flank or abdomen. It is usually chronic and dull.

Another cause of pain is kidney cyst infection, a more serious condition.

-Blood in urine (hematuria). Blood comes from tiny blood vessels around kidney cyst walls. When they are pressed by great pressure, they may burst, thus resulting in blood in urine.

-High blood pressure

-Urinary tract infection

No matter what problems you have, you need immediate treatment. According to our clinical practices, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs, which can shrink kidney cyst without surgery.
