Renal cysts: Are categorized using the bosniak classification scheme. This sounds like a bosniak ii lesion: minimally complex; a few thin (< 1mm) septa, thin ca++; non-enhancing high-attenuation (due to to proteinaceous or hemorrhagic fluid) renal lesions of less than 3 cm are also included in this category; these lesions are generally well marginated. If so, no followup is needed.

Is a complex cyst something a should worry about?

Complex cyst: Where is it? In liver, kidney or ovaries. Each different organ means different possibilities. Complex cyst in ovaries mostly means internal bleeding, and needs to be repeated in few weeks. Kidney and liver complex cysts might need to be followed by ct or mri. Please talk to your doctor.

Likely simple: The vast majority of simple cysts require no treatment. Pain can occur especially if the cyst enlarges. Cyst sizes in patients who require intervention generally range from 5 to 20 cm. You should see your family practice physician if you are having issues.

Talk with urologist: You should talk with your urologist who has seen the scan. Complex cysts can be cancerous sometimes. Your urologist should be able to give you a better idea of that risk.

Ans: Well perhaps. Need a little more history. Has the cyst been there for a while and has there been enlargement in size? Need some more information. But most often the cyst will rupture on its own

Should I be concerned over a 1.5 cm complex cyst? The doctor doesnt seem to worry.

Concerns : Unclear about the cyst location, assuming ovarian. While most are benign, surveillance is needed as some do turn to be cancerous. Depending on actual location of the cyst, a specialist is usually needed in order to address promptly significant changes.
