Multiple kidney cyst: The vast majority of renal cysts and benign simple cysts which are a symptomatic and causes no problems. It is not the same as polycystic kidney disease, where many cysts on both kidneys could lead to kidney failure. An ultrasound can determine if these are simple vs complex cysts, the latter could be worrisome. I suspect the kind you have could simply be followed over time; urologist will guide. ...Read more

Upper quadrant pain. spleen borderline size 12.1cm, mild bilateral pelviectasis of kidneys. minimal R-side hydronephrosis. peripelvic cyst. Normal?

Findings at ER: left ovary contains heterogeneous peripherally vascular 2.5cm cyst. Right ovary has 2.0cm heterogeneous cyst. MUCH pain. What's next?

Options: For young women with a newly found cyst (or cysts) and bad pain - as long as they aren't too large (usually less than 7cm) we typically recommend allowing 6 weeks for the cysts to go away on their own - and then doing another sono to check and see if they are gone. sometimes a cyst can twist, or "torse" and that requires emergency surgery. If pain is severe, and meds don't help, surgery is option. ...Read more
