My husband aged 28, found on a sonography that there is a simple cysts in mid pole of the left kidney. Is it harmfull?, what is the tratment for it

No big deal: A simple cyst in the kidney is common and does not need any further evaluation or treatment. Forget about it and enjoy life.

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

Left kidney cysts, 1-4cm & 1-1.5 cm. Mid pole. Should I see specialist and can they be cancerous?

Left kidney cysts, 1-4cm & 1-1.5 cm. Mid pole. Should I see specialist and can they be cancerous?

Usually not: Most of us adults have kidney cysts and they are usually benign. There are certain characteristics on the scan which can make us more suspicious for cancer and require further testing. Radiologists are very good at picking those up. Usually for benign cysts, we just recheck them in 3-12 months to make sure they are not growing.

Cysts: Renal cysts are present in nearly 50% of the population over 50 y/o. They have a classification system that estimates the likelihood of them being benign called the bozniac classification. Size is less relevant than wall thickness or complexity of the cyst.

Sharp Burning pain left side mid back and down my side for 3 weeks, no injury, 2 years ago had a 1.7cm left kidney cyst, could that have grown?

Sharp Burning pain left side mid back and down my side for 3 weeks, no injury, 2 years ago had a 1.7cm left kidney cyst, could that have grown?

Possible but need to: Also take into account your past history of swollen glands, thyroid nodules, and left kidney cyst that should be followed up and measured by US. Have an integrative physician work with you to balance these health issues out. Have your iodine levels checked too, especially if you have a tendency to form cysts, fibroids, fibrocystic breasts. Burning pain is not normal and can be an irritated nerve.

M58, CT scan says "bilateral renal cortical cyst noted. The largest cyst at the upper pole of the left kidney measures 3.8x5 cm." Is this significiant?

M58, CT scan says "bilateral renal cortical cyst noted. The largest cyst at the upper pole of the left kidney measures 3.8x5 cm." Is this significiant?

Probably not: The majority of people develop a few kidney cysts, especially by the time we reach your age. They are usually benign. A kidney ultrasound would better characterize if it is a simple cyst (benign) or not, especially if there was no IV contrast in the CT scan. It should be noted how many cysts were found, which was not apparent in your description, so I'm only assuming one on each kidney.

In my usg the impression says: echogenic focus in the mid cortal area of left kidney. The kidney measures108.4*53.0mm. What does this mean?

In my usg the impression says: echogenic focus in the mid cortal area of left kidney. The kidney measures108.4*53.0mm. What does this mean?

Nonspecific: The kidney measurement is relatively normal and is essentially just given for reference. The echogenic focus is somewhat nonspecific and could be many things (angiomyolipoma is one that quickly comes to mind). Without seeing the images or knowing if you've had other imaging, it's hard to give much more information.

Husband has mid ureteric stone and moderate hydronephrosis. Is it bad? Does that mean kidney removal? Left kidney functioning normal.

Husband has mid ureteric stone and moderate hydronephrosis. Is it bad? Does that mean kidney removal? Left kidney functioning normal.

No need to remove: Kidney. The stone will either pass or it will not. This largely depends on size. In general, stones less than 5 mm in size should be given an opportunity to pass. Patients can be advised that stones less than 4 mm in size generally pass within one to two weeks. Larger stones may need help from a urologist.

Have 4mm kidney stone in mid pole of left kidney. Have a long flight, India to USA in 2days. Doctor says 4 mm is nothing to worry about. What you think?

Have 4mm kidney stone in mid pole of left kidney. Have a long flight, India to USA in 2days. Doctor says 4 mm is nothing to worry about. What you think?

Hopefully fine: There is always a small chance that the stone could begin to move into the ureter (kidney tube) but this is not likely. You may want to consider treatment of the stone electively before another long trip or important event so that chance of an event is eliminated. Would talk to your urologist.

My wife went through a lithotripsy last year for a 7mm stone. Again 2.5 mm stone in mid pole of left kidney. Acute pain & vomiting. Lithotripsy again?

My wife went through a lithotripsy last year for a 7mm stone. Again 2.5 mm stone in mid pole of left kidney. Acute pain & vomiting. Lithotripsy again?

Possibly.: The most important think is to rule out the presence of a urinary infection. This needs to be treated as soon as possible. Next is symptom control. Lithotripsy is an option, but work with your urologist to see which approach would have the highest rate of success with the smallest degree of invasiveness. Good luck to you both.

Stage 1 grade 3 kidney cancer 3 years ago 9 mm echogenic focus in the mid to upper left kidney likely represents a small angiomyolipoma. Cancer back?

Stage 1 grade 3 kidney cancer 3 years ago 9 mm echogenic focus in the mid to upper left kidney likely represents a small angiomyolipoma. Cancer back?

Probably Not: Probably not - amls are benign tumors, with generally a characteristic appearance on us. However, especially given your history, please keep following the plan for surveillance you and your doctor (s) have come up with. Closer scrutiny of this finding as well as the rest of your body is very important.
