What does it mean to have complex exophytic cyst in kidney?

It means that

Kidney
the cyst is not empty and has complex material inside it. Kidney cancer has to be excluded by a CT scan with iv dye in cases of complex cyst

Dr. Richard Link answered:

What is exophytic renal cysts? My husband has one that is measured 8mm. Could it be a precursor to kidney cancer?

Unlikely

Cancer
Exophytic renal cysts are simply cysts that extend outside the kidney capsule. You can envision a "pimple" on the surface of the kidney. Endophytic cysts are those that are buried within the kidney cortex. The 8 mm cyst is very small and difficult to characterize on noncontrast imaging. However, such a small lesion without complex features is highly unlikely to be cancerous. May deserve followup.

I have well defined exophytic mass in left kidney as per ct scan report. What does that mean? Is it cancer of the kidney?

Possibly.

Computed_tomography
If the mass is solid this is one of the possibilities. The CT scan should indicate if it is solid, cystic, or a combination of the two. The size should also be given as well as an opinion regarding what this mass represents. Please discuss this with your doctor.

Dr. Jason A. Kline answered:

On CT the doctors found multiple exophytic solid masses on bilateral kidneys. What is the likely diagnosis, cancer?

See a Urologist.

Computed_tomography
Solid masses found on kidneys are more concerning than fluid-filled lesions. You should see a Urologist for further evaluation of these lesions. Best of luck to you.

Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

Is a kidney lesion something to worry about?

Depends.

Open-uri20130304-29586-1kr13oa
Some lesions are benign, some malignant, and many unknown until treatment or a biopsy is performed. Many tumors, cysts, or kidney stones that are benign do not need treatment, and may be observed. Some benign lesions can enlarge in size to later cause problems, and require treatment though they are not cancerous. And malignant lesions should be treated by an experienced urologist.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

What test are needed for a kidney lesion to make sure it isnt cancer.

Depends

Kidney
A radiologist may be able to certify it as benign based on images (benign cysts are extremely common), or may do some dye studies. You have a right to find out from your physician what's the appropriate workup for your mass, and whether biopsy or some other means of getting tissue is in order.
