14cm cyst on renal pelvis
I’ve been feeling badly, and was looking at blood test and whatever I had to try and understand things. I tripped over a comment included in a CT scan. It read - Kidneys: No acute renal abnormality. Renal cortical thinning appreciated more prevalent on the right. 14 cm simple cyst in the right renal pelvis noted.
A 14cm cyst would be 5.5”. That seems large to just totally ignore. I do have Stage 3 CKD, and while the two are seemingly independent of each other, it just seems like a five and a half inch cyst in this area would have some merit to have come up in conversation with the doctor.
Anyone have insight about a cyst of this size on the renal pelvis area?
I believe what I actually have is an infection just based off of some blood results but it’s not obvious to me and the doctors to this point have not been helpful. In fairness, this is just starting to get to the right ones, or so I hope.
I’m dealing with night sweats, profuse sweating with very little activity, clammy skin, tiredness, can’t eat due to quickly feeling full and sick. I feel hot but don’t have a fever, I always feel hot, full, sickly, when I eat. Blood pressure has been on a slow climb upward in the last few years to a 159/86 60 kind of range and upward. The cyst likely can’t be blamed for my troubles, but I’m no doctor.
