Is A 8.3cm Kidney Cyst SeriousAnswer: Kidney cysts are round pouches of fluid that form on or in the kidneys. Simple kidney cysts usually do not need any treatment, because it does not cause any damage. But for those cysts which keep enlarging, importance should be attached. Now yours is very big, larger than 5cm, and it causes pain, treatment is required to shrink it.

Kidney cyst can be associated with serious disorders that may impair kidney function.

Without timely treatment, the cyst can cause high blood pressure, which can impair renal function. And the cyst can also cause direct kidney damage if it is in the kidneys.

Treatment for kidney cyst

Conventional treatment is to use surgeries to shrink renal cysts, such as sclerotherapy, in which the cyst is punctured using a long needle, guided by ultrasound. The cyst is then drained and filled with an alcohol-containing solution to harden it. Sclerotherapies are typically done on an outpatient basis with a local anesthetic. However, if your kidney cyst is caused by polycystic kidney disease (PKD), this treatment is only a temporary medical relief. Once the big cysts are removed, small ones will grow up.

In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we usually suggest invasive treatment - Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to patients with kidney cyst. This treatment can infiltrate the micronized herbs into kidneys to take effect. This treatment can restrain the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to stop the cysts from growing. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out, and then cyst will shrink. It usually takes about one month for you to see the cysts shrink.

A 8.3cm kidney cyst is very large, which can cause a variety of problems. Therefore, you had better take treatment as early as possible to shrink it. For more information on kidney cyst treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
