You might not need treatment if a minor kidney cyst has no symptoms and has no impact on kidney function. Instead, to discover if your kidney cyst changes over time, your doctor may advise that you undergo imaging tests like ultrasounds. You may opt to receive treatment if your kidney cyst changes and develops symptoms. Simple kidney cysts can disappear on their own. The cyst is pierced, its contents are drained, and then a solution is injected. The remedy results in scarring and aids in keeping the cyst from once more oozing fluid. The solution can be alcohol or a chemical substance. Rarely, a long, thin needle may be put into your skin and through the wall of the cyst to shrink it. Surgery can be necessary for a big cyst that is producing symptoms. A surgeon makes multiple tiny incisions in your skin and inserts small video cameras, instruments, and other devices to access the cyst. The surgeon directs the tools to the kidney and uses them to drain the fluid from the cyst while watching a video monitor in the operating room. The cyst’s walls are then removed by burning or cutting. Simple cysts are rarely surgically removed. Your doctor may insert a tiny, camera-equipped tube through your urethra and bladder into your ureter to remove a smaller stone from your kidney or ureter. Special equipment can be used to snare the stone or break it into bits that will pass once it has been discovered.
