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

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. ...Read more

Ask your doctor...: More info on your general health profile will help decision-making. Clinically, nowadays, you have 3 reasonable options to follow including: 1, if young and healthy, do laparoscopic partial nephrectomy; 2. if reluctant, do biopsy to decide benignancy or malignancy - if malignant, operate as that in 1.; if benign, watch and see; 3.consider radio-frequency or cryo ablation.

No cure ...: Most likely, the cyst of left kidney is a common incidental finding found while being evaluated with CT/MRI for abdominal pain or backache, will stay with you forever, and most times requires no Rx / intervention if a simple cyst is well defined. If not, periodic US for follow-up may be required. As to how often the F/U is needed, ask Doc for detail timely. Remember Doc have never cured anyone but ...Read more
