am bit worried about my latest ultrasound results.i have this cortical renal cyst(left kidney)and occassional rbc in my urine.i am 32yo man.according to the results of the ultrasound there is a calcification would you mind explaining it?what should i do and what should i eat?
Calcifications in a renal cyst requires further evaluation. In the presence of RBC in the urine I suggest that a renal CT scan be done. This may be able to ascertain the presence and extent of calcification found in the ultrasound scan. This is probably a benign cyst. How large is the cyst?
It is still best to have this further evaluated. A Renal CT scan every 6 months may be done to monitor the cyst. If indicated a renal MRI may be requested to ascertain involvement of nearby structures and to help guide the right management.
At this point, continue taking a well balanced diet. Avoid any spicy food or too much salt in the diet. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices. Mild exercises may be able to improve circulation.
