Complex kidney cyst needs to be taken very seriously, especially in children with partial nephrectomy, because there is a risk that they might turn carcinogenic. Well then, how to take good care of the children to protect them from surgeries? First of all, I think you should know more about the partial nephrectomy.
Limits of partial nephrectomy
This surgical technique is also called kidney-sparing surgery. The goal is to remove only the diseased part of your kidney sparing the healthy parts of kidneys. However, if you know the root cause of kidney disease is blood instead of kidney itself, you may know that this kind of surgery is a temporary control of the progression of the illness condition, because the surgery just remove the damaged parts but not destroy the pathogenic factors. What’s more, partial nephrectomy has some potential risks, like:
● Urine leakage
● Internal bleeding
● Injury to surrounding organs
Causes complex renal cyst in children
One may inherit kidney cyst congenitally. On the other hand, they can be acquired after the birth, due to problems in the kidney tubule. Another cause may be infection like tapeworm. In addition, dialysis, including hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, also man cause infections or injuryies during the process.
Treatment of complex renal cyst in children
The treatments are different according to the size of the renal cysts
If the cysts are less than 3cm and cause no symptoms, your doctor may suggest you taking no treatment. However, measures that help prevent the cysts from enlarging is very necessary.
If the cysts are more than 3cm and have caused pain or infection, the patients need surgery. Usually, a doctor puncture the cyst with a long needle inserted through the skin, using ultrasound for guidance to drain the cyst.
However, as I mentioned above, surgery has its limits, so you need to find another fundamental way. Herbal Medicine can help you achieve your goal. The ingredients in herbs can not only help shrink or remove the cysts, but also protect the remaining kidney function from being attacked. More important, herbs come from the nature, so they are more natural and safe for children.
