Question
USG done one month back showed 6mm stone in right kidney. I got done another USG today showed 3mm stone in right kidney and few cysts in right kidney , 18mm being the largest, and, one small cyst in mid pole region measuring 7mm. Right kidney measures 98x45, left kidney 98x40. Both are normal echo pattern,pelvicalyceal system normal, cortico medullary differentiation well maintained. Cysts were not found in the previous USG.
I have grade 1 prostrate and fatty liver grade 1 condition. Urinary bladder well distended. Wall thickened, cystitis? My question is:
Why the cysts were formed in one months time?
Are they because the ayurvedic cystone drug I am taking?
Do I need further investigations? If so, what r they?
My BP is well under control with one a loppers tab and sugar normal with one cetaphin 500 mg. my age is 70 y and walk 5 km a day.
Thanks

Dear XXXXXXX
Few simple cysts in the kidney are normal with age. It is unlikely that the cysts developed in a month's time, but more likely to have developed over many months or years.

None of the meds are responsible for them. You can continue with customs.

If the cysts are described as simple cysts, then no further testing is needed. Otherwise a CT of the kidneys will be needed.

3mm stone doesn't need any treatment.

Keep your BP under under heck, plenty of fluids to make about 2.5 to 3 lit of Urine per day, is all that is needed.
