What is the remedy for polyp in the kidney?

What is the remedy for polyp in the kidney?

Sometimes nothing: I'm thinking that you are referring to a renal cyst. The treatment for this is sometimes nothing, if it is an isolated cyst and your renal function is normal. I would think monitoring kidney function and occasional ultrasounds would be reasonable. Talk with the doc that ordered the test originally and see what they say. ...Read more

I had bc, have one kidney, severe osteopor, deg discs, lymphadema, gallbladder polyp, how often should I see my family doctor for management?

Well,: There are only two options here, either the physician should tell you how often he/she wants you back, or you go to see the physician as needed.

What would cause a lump larger than golf to form between two ribs on my lower back? I had just had a benign polyp removed from my colonoscopy. I also have muscular dystrophy and have lost over 20 lbs in the past couple months. I have not gained or lost we

What would cause a lump larger than golf to form between two ribs on my lower back? I had just had a benign polyp removed from my colonoscopy. I also have muscular dystrophy and have lost over 20 lbs in the past couple months. I have not gained or lost we

Any: Any weight loss over 10 pounds in 6 months, unless attained through diligent intentional efforts, is considered abnormal. 20 pounds in 2 months is a lot of weight loss. With your family history, you are at increased risk of cancer in any organ system. You should see your primary care physician to determine which studies will have the highest likelihood of getting to the source of the weight loss. Many causes are not cancer, such as an overactive thyroid.

As for the nodule on your back--it may or may not be a source of symptoms. Many people have benign fatty lesions. However, the size can be concerning. I saw a "lipoma" recently that took up most of the guy's shoulder. Larger lesions, even if a "lipoma" can hide cancer inside them and should be removed. Also, any lesion that is increasing in size, stuck to the underlying tissue, or has a "hard" feeling to it needs to be removed. ...Read more

Nabothian cyst in cervix, 2.1cm cyst in right ovary. History of uterine polyp. Pain in left lower abdomen15dys, lower back pain+no period-what is it?

Multiple issues: Nabothian cysts are normal as is (probably) the rt ovarian cyst. The uterine polyp is more worrisome and should be followed (with ultrasound) to make sure it doesn't get bigger. The lack of periods could be related to pregnancy, hormonal imbalances or low body fat/athletic activity. The back pain can certainly come from the pelvic issues or can be the spine itself. Gyn eval 1st then spine eval. ...Read more

The same polyps symptoms reocurred 3 months after the polyps have been removed after a colonoscopie. Does a colonoscopie need to be done immediately?

Not necessarily: If you had a thorough exam and all polyps were removed 3 months ago, and symptoms have recurred, doubtful due to new polyps as they do not grow that fast. Your symptoms were probably not due to the polyps and as yet have not been correctly diagnosed. I would discuss with your endoscopist ...Read more

What is cervical polyps and what are the symptoms and causes? And how is it treated? I have infrequent bleeding and I think I have cervical polyps!

Removal: Cerivcal polyps are almost always benign, but we still recommend their removal. They are easy for a gynecologist to remove, so be sure to see a doctor so the polyp can be sent to a pathologist and confirm the bleeding isn't pre-cancer or cancer. The symptoms are most commonly bleeding after intercourse, or heavy bleeding or intermittant breakthrough bleeding. We don't know why they form. ...Read more
