Doctor diagnosed 1.4 CM renal cyst. I had an ultrasound that showed a 1.4 CM renal cyst with a question of calcification in cyst wall. Now I have to get a CT scan. How bad could this be. Am scared out of my mind.

No and maybe: Hi. Neither renal cysts nor tumors cause high chromogranin A nor high VIP. If the cyst is not a cyst, but a tumor, it could cause hypokalemia. Dehydration would be more likely due to the high VIP (which IS related to high chromogranin A), and the secretory diarrhea it causes. Renal cyst is probably a red herring. ...Read more

A simple cyst is OK!: A simple (clear or see through) renal cyst is not a significant event. However, a complex cyst, (the one that appears to house tissue or clotted blood inside) is important to follow closely because it may be cancerous. However, if cysts are too numerous and on both sides, like in the case of polycystic kidney disease, the squished renal tissue over the years may lead to kidney failure. ...Read more

I have renal cyst. And my daughter was playin with me and kept kickin. My back. Now that kidney is really hurting. What's goin on?
My father aged 70 long time renal cyst disease gradually creatinine clearance gone upto 6.5 help!
Not easily answered: Creatinine level all by itself does not determine the need for dialysis. If the total remaining kidney function keeps him symptom free and blood tests do not have dangerous chemical abnormalities then he may be able to manage his condition with medications for awhile longer. At age 70 if his creatinine or creatinine clearance is 6.5, it is likely though he will need dialysis soon. ...Read more

USS July diagnosed 3.8 CM simple L renal cyst. Renal CT scan yesterday showed 3cm exophytic mass arising from L upper pole looks like a cyst?? CA
Tissue is the issue: Hi. Diagnosis of what the renal mass is requires tissue for the pathologist to examine. Imaging studies may be suggestive or not, but to be certain, a pathologist must study a CT- or U/S-guided core biopsy of the mass. Sometimes surgical biopsy is necessary to determine whether benign or malignant. We don't have the means to make that determination. The mass may not be suspicious enough to biopsy ...Read more

I have 2 type II renal cyst 3 stones inside cyst aprox 3 CM and I just found out I am pregnate does this create a risk?
Maybe: If the stones are only in the cyst, and do not connect with the urinary flow by being in the ureter or renal pelvis, they should not pose a problem. If they do connect, it could pose a problem in pregnancy. I would drink a lot of water and be vigilant about seeing a doctor if you see blood in your urine, have flank pain, or a high fever. ...Read more
I have had six uti's in six months. I have another one with large amount of bood. (2 16 oz) cups. Renal cyst too. I don't want to to to er, will this hold until later?
I would not wait: Frequent UTI can be due to incompletely treated UTI so you may need a longer course of antibiotics. If they are truly separate infections, you have to see a urologist to figure out if there are structural problems causing incomplete emptying of your bladder. Renal cysts can also get infected and bleed causing UTI and blood in urine. The cysts may need to be removed. ...Read more
