I have exophytic cyst on my right kidney is it something I should be worried about?

As long: As it is a simple cyst, it shouldn't cause any problems or require any treatment. In rare cases, benign cysts grow very large and can cause symptoms simply due to their size, but that is unusual. Kidney cysts are very common. ""Exophytic" simply means it is protruding from the nromal margin of the kidney, it doesn't imply that there is anything worrisome. ...Read more

I have. 4 mm cyst on my right kidney. Last night I had a stinging type pain in my back (kidney area). This morning I passed a blood clot.?

Cyst: 4mm is extremely small, and most kidney cysts are not symptomatic, unless you have polcystic kidney disease. More likely would be that you may be passing a small kidney stone or perhaps a urinary infection. Go to urgent care for urine culture, perhaps get a CT scan to look for a stone. ...Read more

My lumbar MRI shows hyper intense lesion measuring 2.5 CM in right kidney probably related to a cyst. What should I do?

Seen answer: It’s not uncommon for one imaging examination to detect an “incidentaloma” – an unrelated observation in the obtained images. Talk to your dr. / radiologist – they may want to confirm this observation with a renal ultrasound or possibly a repeat MRI – if it is a renal cyst, these are common, and usually not of clinical consequence. ...Read more

Cysts in the kidney: All of us will develop benign cysts in the kidneys with age. 2 cysts are of no concern. They may cause microscopic blood in the urine otherwise harmless. We usually repeat the Ultrasound annually for 2 years and if there's not much change in the size, number, and look (or complexity) of the cysts, then we repeat ultrasound every 2 years, that's all you need to do! ...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
