Kidney Cyst

Posted by harold8782 @harold8782, Jul 30, 2018

I have been having a dull pain on my right side in front and in back at kidneys. I have had kidney stones in the past. I have lots of kidney stones all the time. I had an Ultra sound, CT Scan and and MRI. All showed i have a Kidney Cyst. I still have not seen the doctor, just a NP over the phone. I have requested from my regular doctor to go see another urologist since these are so busy! The NP says the Kidney Cyst can't cause pain. Something is causing it. I have gotten a copy of my MRI. It shows I have a Bosniak 2F Cyst. It also says it is not a simple cyst, but a complex cyst. The size is 3.0cm x 2.5cm x 3.0. Should I make an appointment to come to Mayo to get this seen about. The pain is not bad but tiring and a dull ache most of the time. Can anyone help???

How scary, I am sorry you are going through this it sounds stressful. I am a transplant patient and I do absolutely everything I can to protect my kidney function so personally I would keep pushing until I had answers. You know your body and if you are concerned you deserve to find out more. I have had great care at Mayo and found that many of the doctors like the challenge of "interesting" cases.
