Atypical v simple: Simple cyst is a sac that contains clear liquid. It is usually benign. Atypical means non-typical. The contents here are not clear. It may contain old blood, fatty tissues, or solid tissue. We worry about possibility of solid tissue because it may be cancerous; hence, the follow up ultrasound which is designed to detect growth in order to allow for prompt intervention if needed. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

My results for my recent ultrasound are that I have a septic cyst on my left kidney & a remarkable bladder. What does this mean?

'Remarkable': bladder is probably a typo and really means 'unremarkable', which is normal. The septated kdney cyst may or mat not be significant. If the septation is thin, it is likely nothing to worry about. If it is thick or irregular, it is more concerning. Speak with your doctor to get the details. ...Read more

I had bladder cancer 10 yrs ago. Simple cyst in left kidney was 3mm, now 8mm and read as complex. What is the probability of malignancy?

Possible.: Difficult to give you probability statistics in this setting, but any complex cyst requires close monitoring. With your history of bladder cancer, though, I encourage you to follow up with your urologist for his/her opinion. Malignancy unfortunately is not out of the question, but would be much easier to manage sooner rather than waiting until later. Best of luck to you. ...Read more

Liver: left lobe cyst measure 2.1x1.7x2.4 CM kidney: right 11 CM a midpole calculus left kidney 11.6 cm. Should I be worried? Dr says it's ok

Don't worry: Cysts in the liver as long as proven to be just cysts are inconsequential. Your kidneys are fine except for the calculus. Ask for proper diet, and if needed a medicine to help dissolve it and other risks in its formation such as high uric acid or gout. Otherwise things look fine. ...Read more

I'm 35 yrs of age and diagnose with septated cyst between the spleen and upper pole of the left kidney is it too bad and need to undergo operation?

I'm 35 yrs of age and diagnose with septated cyst between the spleen and upper pole of the left kidney is it too bad and need to undergo operation?

CYST: The size and presummed origin of the cyst determine the nature of the problem. A septation places it into a different category if it's from the kidney but it is still very likely to be benign and unlikely to cause symptoms unless it grows. The key is the thickness of the wall and if there is blood flow or calcifications seen in the walls or septum. These are in a more serious category. ...Read more

Therefore a couple of follow ups may give you more comfort. These can be done at 6mos and 1-1 1/2 yrs. You should talk to your doctor in reference to this, and the U/S lab expertise with renal U/S. ...Read more

What does a "solitary cyst in the left kidney" and a "solitary enlarged uterus with focal adenomyosis" mean?

What does a "solitary cyst in the left kidney" and a "solitary enlarged uterus with focal adenomyosis" mean?

Ultrasound or MRI?: Usually nothing if you have no abnormal bleeding or pain. An enlarged uterus can be normal after childbirth (dimensions?), and adenomyosis is simply endometrium (uterine lining) growing into the muscular layer (also called endometriosis interna). Both may be normal for you & can be followed by ultrasound along with your renal cyst. See your doc if you are having problems & good luck. ...Read more

Agree with urologist: Simple kidney cysts are more common as people age. An estimated 25 percent of people 40 years of age and 50 percent of people 50 years of age have simple kidney cysts. Simple kidney cysts usually do not cause symptoms or harm the kidneys. On very rare occasions, a simple cyst can cause pain if large enough to press on adjacent organs or if a cyst becomes infected. ...Read more
