Dangers of Surgery to Remove A Kidney CystWhen kidney cyst is very big and causes severe complications such as back pain and high blood pressure, it is necessary to remove it. Surgery is a commonly used treatment. Does it have any dangers? Go on reading to learn more information.

-Persistent pain

Although the cyst has been removed, some patients still have chronic kidney pain.


In some cases, bleeding can happen.

-Urine leak

When treating cyst that lie in close proximity to the drainage system of the kidney, any small entry into the drainage system can lead to a leakage of urine from the kidney into the surrounding tissues.


Although patients are given broad spectrum intravenous antibiotics immediately prior to surgery, infections of the urinary tract and skin incisions may still occur but are rare.

-Adjacent tissue/organ injury

Adjacent organs and tissues may be injured as a result of your surgery. This includes the colon, bowel, vascular structures, nerves, muscles, spleen, liver, pancreas and gallbladder.

-Cyst recurrence

Although very effective, laparoscopic renal cyst ablation is associated with an approximately 5-10% chance of recurrence of the cyst. If kidney cyst is caused by PKD, the recurrence rate is much higher. Because when the big cysts are removed, the small ones will grow up quickly.

In addition, surgery may have some other dangers, such as complete removal of kidney, hernia, and conversion to open surgery.

If you worry about those dangers, why not try some conservative treatment for kidney cysts?

In our hospital, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used. It is an external application of herbal medicine. This treatment can suppress the abnormal proliferation of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to prevent renal cysts from growing further. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out, and then renal cysts will shrink.

After about one week’s treatment, back pain will be relived greatly. After about half month’s treatment, high blood pressure will be brought under control. After about one month’s treatment, kidney cysts will shrink, and kidney function will get improved.

All the surgeries are invasive. If you would like to try conservative treatment, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be a good choice. For more information on our hospital and our treatment for kidney cysts, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
