Lower back pain, stomach pain, blood in urine, protein showed on tests, has a cyst. What is it?

Hi my 15 year daughter has been suffering with lower bak pain and tummy ache since August . She has had blood in her urine and urine tests showed protein in it. The doctor sent her for a scan which showed up a cyst but has a shadow in the middle. One off her blood test showed 77 think kidney one they retested again recently which now is 68. A pediatrician now wants to rescan her as he is concerned about the unusual shaped 2cm cyst with a shadow in the middle. What can you tell me about this. Thank you

Hi. I am afraid you need to be a bit more clear about the name of the blood test result and the value. If it is creatinine and the value is millimols, it seems normal. However there is some physical abnormality in the kidney which needs further investigation. I suspect your daughter will need a CT scan of the kidneys to clarify the nature of the cyst. Many a times it turns out to be benign (i.e. nothing to worry about) but worth getting the advised investigation ASAP. Regards
