Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Ultrasound says 9mm small renal cyst, was not indicated if its simple or complex. What will i do? Will i repeat it again? Pls help

Ultrasound says 9mm small renal cyst, was not indicated if its simple or complex. What will i do? Will i repeat it again? Pls help

Most Likely Benign : Most sub-centimeter cysts are too small to further characterize. However, if the radiologist didn't mention anything complicating the cyst, than its most likely simple and requires no follow up. Many people have simple renal cysts and this is a very common incidental imaging finding. ...Read more

Fever of 101 n pain under right rib n back. Did bloodwork,ultrasound,ct, n MRI n only found complex renal cyst. What are they missing? Y so much pain?

Fever of 101 n pain under right rib n back. Did bloodwork,ultrasound,ct, n MRI n only found complex renal cyst. What are they missing? Y so much pain?

What about the cyst?: Has the urologist said what they plan to do about the cyst? Are they doing a biopsy? Have you been losing weight or having night sweats? How big is the cyst? I would keep pressing your doctors for answers - a recurring fever of 101 is coming from somewhere! Perhaps talk with an Infectious Disease specialist as well. Other consultants could include Oncology and Rheumatology..... ...Read more

I have pelvic ultrasound yesterday and found out tiny non obstructing nephrolithiasis, bilateral; small renal cyst measuring 9mm, left.Should i worry?

No: Small kidney cysts are pretty common. And small non obstructing stones should not cause much issue especially if you have a history of prior stones. If concerned, check with your urologist or physician who ordered the tests. ...Read more

Subtle hyperechoic foci in both kidneys, probably renal calculi. Left renal cyst measured 17mm. There is no hydronephrosis or other masses. What does this kidney ultrasound mean?

Subtle hyperechoic foci in both kidneys, probably renal calculi. Left renal cyst measured 17mm. There is no hydronephrosis or other masses. What does this kidney ultrasound mean?

no cancer: Renal cysts are very common and nothing to worry about. The subtle hyperechoic foci probably represent tiny kidney stones which may grow over time. No hydronephrosis means no evidence of something obstructing the flow of urine to your bladder. No masses means just that. Please see your doctor to review this report as well as current laboratory tests of your kidney function. ...Read more

Unrelated: Usually those 2 cysts are unrelated, however if the renal cyst is complex then a follow dedicated ct or ultrasound of the kidney should be done in 3-6 months to confirm stability. ...Read more

Doctor diagnosed 1.4 CM renal cyst . I had an ultrasound that showed a 1.4 CM renal cyst with a question of calcification in cyst wall. Now I have to get a CT scan. How bad could this be. Am scared out of my mind.

Doctor diagnosed 1.4 CM renal cyst . I had an ultrasound that showed a 1.4 CM renal cyst with a question of calcification in cyst wall.  Now I have to get a CT scan.  How bad could this be.  Am scared out of my mind.

Cyst: You have a small cyst, and it is not unusual to find cyst on US. Calcification itself doesn't make it cancer. I would proceed with the CT if that what has been ordered, and then see a Urologist. Was simple or complex cyst on US? The CT should show simple vs other cyst. Best of luck. ...Read more

I've had multiple bilateral simple renal cysts for a few years. Recent ultrasound shows internal echoes in one of them. Can simple cyst turn complex?

I've had multiple bilateral simple renal cysts for a few years. Recent ultrasound shows internal echoes in one of them. Can simple cyst turn complex?

Yes: A simple cyst can become more complex if bleeding or infection occurs within it. Rarely, intracystic malignancy can occur. If it is just some low level echoes, it is probably nothing to worry about. If there are multiple renal cysts, it is not uncommon for one or two to have some internal echoes. If there are no suspicious features, sometimes they are ignored, followed with serial US, or f/uCT ...Read more

Discomfort lower back, both side, below ribs. BUN=11.8 Creatine 1.02 UltraSound of KUB=ok, 2 small renal cysts. Taking Doxycycline 100mg bid for18 day?

I am not clear: on exactly what your question is or why you are taking the doxycycline. It appears that you may have some sort of UTI or prostate infection and possibly been on antibiotics a couple of days. The Labs and Ultrasound are unremarkable. Please send us more information please. ...Read more

Can Renal cyst cause hight chromogranin and high vip levels? Also hypoK and dehydration.

Can Renal cyst cause hight chromogranin  and high vip levels? Also hypoK and dehydration.

No and maybe: Hi. Neither renal cysts nor tumors cause high chromogranin A nor high VIP. If the cyst is not a cyst, but a tumor, it could cause hypokalemia. Dehydration would be more likely due to the high VIP (which IS related to high chromogranin A), and the secretory diarrhea it causes. Renal cyst is probably a red herring. ...Read more

My father aged 70 long time renal cyst disease gradually creatinine clearance gone upto 6.5 help !

My father aged 70 long time renal cyst disease gradually creatinine clearance gone upto 6.5 help !

Dialysis?: If your father has a creatinine clearance (cc), he should be on dialysis with a cc of 7 ml/min. It seems that he has polycystic kidney disease (pkd) which has progressed, as it normally does, to end stage renal failure. Have him see a nephrologist to check his hemoglobin, phosphorus, calcium and intact parathyroid hormone levels. A cc result is based on one's creatinine and is different from it. ...Read more

I have a complex endophytic left renal cyst. medial cortex just under the ureter opening. how are my chances of keeping most of my kidney?

You can keep it: even if for a solid mass they usually try to save as much kidney as possible. so for a cystic lesion, it is safer to save more kidney. so unless they are concern about malignancy they usually save the kidney. ...Read more
