Question: I just had a MRI that showed I have a cystic lesion 2.9cm on the right kidney. I also have lupus SLE. I’m scared that it might be kidney disease. What should I do now?

2.9 cm Kidney Cyst with Lupus: What Should I DoAnswer: Thanks for your inquiry. You are not alone to have kidney cyst and lupus. To know what you should do, you’d better learn about these two problems.

Firstly, kidney cyst is a fluid-filled sac. About half of people over 50 will have one or several kidney cysts. They are usually benign and cause no symptoms until they grow very big. 2.9 cm kidney cyst is large enough to cause some problems such as back pain, flank pain, nausea, high blood pressure, hematuria and urinary tract infection, etc. If you are experiencing any one of the above symptoms, please email to kidney-symptoms@hotmail.com to consult our doctors.

Lupus, or SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) is a systemic autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks normal and healthy issue. This can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs. When lupus affects kidneys, it causes Lupus Nephritis.

If you want to know whether they have caused kidney damage, you can do a urine or blood test to check creatinine, BUN and GFR level. Sometime, ultrasound or CT is necessary to see the kidney size.

To deal with your condition, you have to make some diet changes to slow down or stop the kidney cyst growth, restore normal immune system and protect kidney function.
