I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
I have a 5cm benign cyst on my right kidney. What are the complications? Please answer.
Hello, thanks for your query.
You said that you have a 5cm benign cyst on your right kidney, right? May I know your age? Because this disease is common in the elderly.
In most cases, this type of kidney disease is harmless. As the cyst has increased to 5cm, it may cause extra pressure to the surrounding renal tissues. Do you have symptoms like back pain or fever? If so, please inform us by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately!
Complications caused by 5cm benign cyst usually include infections, bleeding or pain.
Besides, there can also be:
Proteinuria: The amount of protein in urine is usually less than 2g.
High blood pressure: When renal ischemia occurs, the secretion of renin will be increased, so blood pressure will become higher.
Impaired kidney function: Enlarged cysts can cause damage to the nearby kidney structures, so there can be progressive decline of kidney function.
Nowadays, treatments for this condition usually include cyst decortication and surgery. However, the efficacy is not satisfactory. At our center, we recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which is both effective and harmless.
I hope you have known the answers you were looking for. Any questions? We would be glad to help.
