Details: I have small cortical cyst in right kidney. Is it dangerous? Please, answer me.

Expert Answer

Kidney cyst has two common types: renal cortical cyst and parapelvic cyst. As we all know, every health person has two kidneys, and the right kidney is a little smaller than the left one. However, both kidneys have certain capacity. In most cases, small cortical cyst won’t cause any symptom or discomfort for patients.

From the above analysis, we can know small cortical cyst in right kidney isn’t dangerous. If you want to monitor the growth of your kidney cyst closely, you are suggested to do regular follow-up and arrange a right diet plan and healthy lifestyle. Although these methods can’t help shrink kidney cysts, they are indeed helpful to slow down the growth of kidney cysts effectively.

However, as time goes on, the kidney cyst will become larger than 3 or 4 cm. Then, patients should take some therapies to shrink or remove the kidney cyst effectively. Surgery is one effective therapy to remove large kidney cyst, while Chinese medicines can help shrink kidney cysts effectively. If you need any help, you can consult online directly.
