I have a 1.7 cm. cyst on right kidney. The Dr. said it wasn't nothing to worry about. Why is it there? Is this normal? The other kidney looked fine. I will be changing Dr.'s, as he treated me like a number and that doesn't get it. If anyone knows about cyst on kidneys please comment.
What was the outcome of your cyst? I'm curious due to the fact that I was also diagnosed with similar except mine is on my left cortex kidney (2 cm). The doctor told me they will monitor every 6 months and if I develop UTI to go in immediately. If I develop 3 or more UTI's in a year, then I should go to a urologist. Is this something that was stated to you? Please help me. Thank you in advance...Ronnie_Ann
