Unhappy Huge Kidney Cyst

In 2007 a scan for something other than my kidney revealed a "small" cyst. Today I got results that show the cyst is 10.9 cm and in 2007 it was 8 cm. It seems that this is not "small" like the original dr. stated. Now I am worried about cancer, and wondering if the daily diarhea problems I have after eating lunch and the horrendous pain I have just below my sternum an average of 3 times per month could be related to this large (coke can) size cyst. Could it be affecting my digestive system, other organs, etc. Any ideas of what tests need to be done, surgery, etc. I do have an appt. with a urologist but not for another 2 weeks. Thanks for any comments/help!

Re: Huge Kidney Cyst

Dear Cokecan-

My Husband to has cyst in is remaining Kidney-He had the right completley taken out in 2006 due to cancer-His Cyst in the remaining Kidney are just that-The Diareah would concern me tho-as that is how we discovered his cancer the first time around-but his was non stop for 9 days and I am sure they are preforming creatine level test to make sure your Kidneys are fine. But from my experince over the last few years-Cyst are no concern.His Kidney specialist told the family and I that his Kidney witht he cyst would be the last thing to go (My husband has devoleped Brain Matestsis and spots in his liver,From the origianl cancer) So dont stress to much about cyst-

Re: Huge Kidney Cyst

I will pray for you that it does turn out okay and remeber even if it is more serious from the sounds of the scan it is very small and that is the best-When My hubby had his it was in the entire Kidney-And he had a great three years with just one kidney-But if the doc says cyst-Nothing to worry about like I said before my hubby One kidney one large cyst-very good life.

Re: Huge Kidney Cyst

I am still trying to navigate this message board stuff. Thank you again, I will also say some prayers for you and your husband. I will find out more on the 13th. I do know it is a huge cyst measuring 8x11x7.5 and is causing my kidney to roatate. I have heard they can aspirate the fluid to reduce the size and then test the fluid for cancer? All so confusing. I will keep you posted. Have a great day!
