I have a complex endophytic left renal cyst. medial cortex just under the ureter opening. how are my chances of keeping most of my kidney?

You can keep it: even if for a solid mass they usually try to save as much kidney as possible. so for a cystic lesion, it is safer to save more kidney. so unless they are concern about malignancy they usually save the kidney. ...Read more
