What exactly is a renal cyst?

What exactly is a renal cyst?

Fluid filled cavity: Kidney cysts are formed by blockage of a minute kidney tubule called a nephron. We have about a million nephrons in each normal kidney. Simple kidney cysts are very common and present in about one third of people and are benign. Polycystic kidneys have cysts throughout the organ, are usually present on both sides and are an inherited congenital condition. Rare complex cysts can be cancerous. ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Can Renal cyst cause hight chromogranin and high vip levels? Also hypoK and dehydration.

Can Renal cyst cause hight chromogranin  and high vip levels? Also hypoK and dehydration.

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

My father aged 70 long time renal cyst disease gradually creatinine clearance gone upto 6.5 help !

My father aged 70 long time renal cyst disease gradually creatinine clearance gone upto 6.5 help !

Dialysis?: If your father has a creatinine clearance (cc), he should be on dialysis with a cc of 7 ml/min. It seems that he has polycystic kidney disease (pkd) which has progressed, as it normally does, to end stage renal failure. Have him see a nephrologist to check his hemoglobin, phosphorus, calcium and intact parathyroid hormone levels. A cc result is based on one's creatinine and is different from it. ...Read more

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

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 ?

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 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

Here are some...: Although a 7-cm complex renal cyst was found on imaging study, it is still hard to affirm the pain is connected with this cyst. However, a careful analysis of the onset, duration, interval, intensity, evolution, & resolution in correlation with imaging study can give a reasonable glimpse of what is going on.
