Causes And Treatment Of Kidney Cysts?
Good evening … r n My father has a cyst in both kidneys, and now the cyst is getting bigger. Now my father has undergone Hemodialysis. Can the cyst on my father’s kidney be removed by laparoscopic surgery? R n r nThank you
Kidney cysts have to be ascertained whether the cyst is present before hemodialysis or after hemodialysis.
In cysts acquired before hemodialysis, it could be polycystic kidney disease. In this disease, if there is no disturbance, only periodic observation and evaluation is required. If it causes symptoms, it can be performed such as suctioning the contents of the fluid or surgery on the cyst.
In people undergoing hemodialysis, 90% develop cysts on the kidneys within 8 years. In the condition that does not cause symptoms, regular observation and evaluation can also be carried out. However, for cysts that cause symptoms such as pain, fluid can be drawn from the cyst. In kidney tumors that arise, tumor can be taken.
So, to determine your father's condition, it's a good idea to discuss with your doctor first. Later, for the next step, you can also discuss it with your doctor.
I hope this helps.
