”Physical examination revealed a cyst in the right kidney, and it was relatively large (5.6 cm x 5.4 cm x 6 cm). Some people said the best surgical removal, but I also heard that renal cysts can be treated without treatment. Shall I cut it?" a patient said miserably.
Similar patients, I met a lot in the clinic, they are very concerned about a problem, that is kidney cyst, cut or not cut?
Simple renal cysts are most common and are frequently detected in physical examinations or for other diseases. A considerable proportion of renal cysts will not increase in ten years. At present, the simple renal cyst is generally not malignant cancer. Therefore, the patient can not do surgery, as long as every six months to a year to check once (do B ultrasound, when necessary for CT, MRI), to understand whether the cyst can increase.
Of course, if the patient is very afraid of renal cyst, causing a serious mental or psychological reaction, or for other reasons, the doctor believes that surgery is necessary, but also surgery. In rare cases, simple renal cyst with low back pain and other symptoms, and even secondary infection, make cyst change, cause abdominal mass, cause hypertension, produce intracystic hemorrhage, or cause renal pelvis and ureter obstruction, etc.. At this point, the doctor will recommend surgery for the patient. Any kind of surgery, the doctor will weigh the pros and cons, put forward specific solutions according to the specific circumstances of the patient, let the patient make a choice.
