Here are some...: Known to us, all medical care is based on indirect evidence resulting from continual collection & analysis of available experience; so is Bosniak classification for kidney cysts deduced from Dr. Bosniak's observation, analysis, & summary for reading films of ultrasound or CT. Complex cyst suggests some odd to have kidney cancer as opposed to simple cyst with an almost zero odd to have cancer.
