Is 8 cm Renal Cortical Cyst Serious

Is 8 cm Renal Cortical Cyst SeriousMost often, renal cortical cyst belongs to simple kidney cyst that won’t cause dangerous complications if kept in small size. However, 8 cm renal cortical cyst is far beyond kidneys’ capability, so it must cause some problems to patients’ kidneys and the whole body.

Compared with the normal kidney size, you will deeply understand why we say 8 cm cortical cyst is too big. For healthy adults, their kidneys are 10-12 cm in length, 5-6 cm in width and 3-4 cm in thickness. 8 cm kidney cyst is nearly as large as the whole kidneys. From the perspective of this cyst size, it will cause damage to kidney functioning tissues if untreated effectively.

Then, the location of this cyst also determines its danger. Renal cortical cyst is located in renal cortex which consists of renal tubules and glomeruli. 8 cm renal cortical cyst is more likely to cause damage to renal cortex including renal tubules and glomeruli. That’s to say, kidney functioning tissues are damaged. If the cyst develops in the surface of the kidney, it may also rupture easily. Then, sac fluid will spread to other tissues and organs, resulting in infections.

Now, the danger of 8 cm renal cortical cyst is understandable. If you want to avoid the above problems, you should take some treatments to shrink or remove it. Today, we would like to introduce Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for renal cortical cysts.

On one hand, some medicines such as lalang grass rhizome and semen plantaginis can help discharge sac fluid and shrink kidney cysts gradually. On the other hand, some other medicines like ground beeltle can help stop secretion of sac fluid.

Many other medicines can also help deal with renal cortical cyst and they are suitable for different patients. You can consult the doctor online to determine what medicines are helpful for you.
