-As referred in the first paragraph, you can use water pills, such as Lasix to remove water. But these medicines can not restore kidney function.

-The fundamental way is to remove the kidney cysts or shrink them. Conventional treatment for large kidney cysts is surgery, but it is a little invasive. And after surgery, it is possible for it to come back. Here we recommend a conservative treatment—Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy can speed up blood circulation and increase the permeability of cyst wall so that cyst fluid can be taken away from the sacs. And then kidney cysts become small. This therapy can also inhibit the abnormal proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and the secretion of cyst fluid. In this way, the cysts stop growing. Moreover, this therapy can help you restore kidney function so as to relieve water retention.

Can a 9 cm kidney cyst cause lots of water retention? Yes, it could. But you had better have a blood test, or urine test or some other test to have a check. You can also get help from online doctor.
