Solitary or multiple cysts in the kidney are quite a common occurrence, especially, with advancing age.
They have no special significance and need not be a cause for concern, except, that, they should be differentiated from renal tumors.
Causes of Renal Cyst
- Heredity or a developmental anomaly
How many cysts are present in the kidney? What is the size?
What investigations have you done?
Any treatment taken?
These cysts are usually asymptomatic, i.e. they present no signs or symptoms.
Occasionally, they may cause pain or haematuria (blood in urine), owing to their large size.
Do you have any pain before, during, or after urination?
Has there been any episode of bleeding?
Get a USG or an excretion urography done.
Tips and Treatments for Renal Cyst:
- There is no need to fret. These cysts do not cause any harm.
- Care ought to be taken, so, that urinary tract infection does not occur.
- Improve your water intake to 3 liters of water per day, plus consume a good amount of other fluids. It is a precautionary measure to prevent the occurrence of an infection.
