Are Kidney Cysts Dangerous For Babies?
HealthReplies.com, I want to ask whether ginta cysts will be dangerous for the baby or not? And how do I cure it?
Hello Nur, TErima for the question.
Kidney cyst is a condition in which fluid-filled sacs (cysts) are found in the kidney. This condition can occur in one or both kidneys. In general, kidney cysts do not cause symptoms unless the cyst is large or compresses the surrounding organs. Harmful or not, depending on the size of the cyst. Large cysts can interfere with kidney function and suppress the surrounding organs. Symptoms that can occur include pain in the lower back or waist, dark urine, often urinating, swelling of the stomach, fever, pain in the gut. Kidney cysts can be detected by ultrasound. But usually the doctor will also recommend to do a blood test to determine kidney function and do a CT scan or MRI to find out the kidney structure in more detail.
Management of kidney cysts depends on the size and condition of each sufferer. If these cysts are small and do not cause symptoms or disorders, then further treatment is not needed but still needs to be monitored regularly. In these conditions, sufferers will be advised to check themselves regularly to the doctor. However, if the cyst is large and causes symptoms, the doctor will recommend treatment in the form of draining kidney fluid or surgical removal of the cyst.
Please consult with your pediatrician first so that the doctor can provide a more precise description of your child's condition and plans for further treatment.
I hope this helps.
