A kidney cyst is a benign tumour with a liquid-filled cavity. It is often congenital, but an acquired form is also possible. Swelling, lumbar pain and increased blood pressure indicate the disease. Surgeons use minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopy) to remove the cyst.

A round sac of fluid that forms on or inside the kidney is called a cyst. In most cases, it does not cause complications or affect kidney function. However, it can be acquired, congenital, single or multiple.

Nevertheless, the cyst is the most common benign kidney lump and accounts for 3% of all urological diseases. In addition, males are more prone than females to develop cysts in the kidney.

The disorder can develop asymptomatically for years. As a result, the cyst does not threaten human life but may provoke accompanied diseases: pyelonephritis, kidney failure, suppuration or rupture.

Symptoms of a kidney cyst include:

  • Pain in the lumbar region and back;
  • Blood in the urine (hematuria);
  • Increased blood pressure;
  • Body temperature and chills.

To determine a kidney cyst, a consultation with a urologist and sometimes a nephrologist and the following examination are necessary:

  • Kidney ultrasound;
  • X-rays (urography);
  • Imaging (CT or MRI);
  • Laboratory tests of blood and urine.

Carrying out renal ultrasound as part of an annual preventive examination allows doctors to detect a cyst in the early stages.

Urologists treat kidney cysts only by surgery. The surgeons perform several types of procedures:

  • Puncture and draining the cyst.
  • Laparoscopy (cyst removal).
