Does Kidney Cyst Less Than 3 cm Require No Treatment

As a kidney cyst patient, Miss Qin does not image that she will suffer from kidney failure. The doctor tells her kidney cyst is not dangerous and requires no treatment.

5 years ago, Miss Qin was diagnosed with kidney cyst in a routine checkup. She consulted the local doctor and the doctor said that the cyst less than 3 cm requires no management. She only needed to take routine checkup.

Since the doctor says it is not necessary to treat kidney cyst less than 3 cm, Miss Qin does not pay attention to it until she has sudden and sharp back pain in recent time. She goes to hospital to find that kidney cyst burst leads to acute kidney failure.

Is it true when kidney cyst is less than 3 cm?

In clinical, we know symptomatic treatment. There are no symptoms if kidney cyst is less than 3 cm. How to treat this? We should wait for the cysts grow bigger. However, we often see some acute kidney failure patients because they obey the rule “no treatment for kidney cyst less than 3 cm”. Although in most cases kidney cysts grow slowly, there is also special condition. Doctor says it is not necessary to treat kidney cyst in early stage but he also tells patients to do routine tests. Few patients can insist on routine test and have no strict diet plan, so kidney cysts will grow quickly and eventually burst.
