    What Does Cortical Cyst in the Lower Pole of Left Kidney MeanRenal cortical cysts are frequently encountering during all types of abdominal imaging, in particular ultrasound. When a cortical cyst form in the lower pole of left kidney, what dose it mean? Now, let’s have a look. Any questions, please do feel free to leave your condition in the form below.

    Actually, renal cortical cyst is one of kind of simple kidney cyst that noted in renal cortex. Renal cortex includes about one million of nephrons and kidney functioning tissues. Because nephrons consist of glomeruli and renal tubules. Renal cortex determines whether kidneys can filter out extra fluid, wastes and toxins normally.

    Honest speaking, when cortical cyst is small in size (less than 3cm), it usually does not cause any discomforts or symptoms to patients. However, it is fluid-filled sac forming in the renal cortex. It also can enlarge over time. If the cortical cyst becomes too big, it will oppress the kidney cells and tissues and surrounding organs, triggering kidney damage. Therefore, even though renal cortical cyst is usually benign and symptomless, more and more symptoms and discomforts will appear with it expansion.

    Through the above analysis, we can see that cortical cyst noted in lower pole of left kidney means that left kidney fail to work effectively if the cyst is big enough. Actually, no matter what size your cyst is, it should draw your high attention. For small cysts, you should monitor it regularly, for big cyst, you should take effective treatment as soon as possible.

    Although there is at present no cure for curing cortical cyst completely, some effective treatments still can help slow down or stop the progression. Here, we use Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to shrink cysts naturally. It can help increase the permeability of cystic walls and prompt the reabsorption of sac fluid. As the fluid is discharged from the body gradually, the renal cortical cells will reduce spontaneously.
