Hi doctor,

Last year when I had tested for routine medical they found a small stone in kidney. I took Cystone for a month. Last week I tested because of a mild pain in the back, they did scanning and some laboratory tests. I have attached those reports. The doctor suggested taking Cystone for 60 days. Just to have a better opinion could you please see my reports and advise. Also, the report shows a cyst. Is it problematic?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query and the attached reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). I would concur with the suggestion given by the doctor. The stones are currently too small to require any treatment. If you are only mildly symptomatic, the best is to continue with Cystone and drink plenty of water. Usually, these stones pass out with this itself. It would be necessary to check after 3 to 4 months with an ultrasound again to see whether they have been cleared. If they are still present, a decision on treatment can be taken at that time.


Thank you doctor,

What about the cyst? Is there any issue with that? In the report, they mentioned the cyst.

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

A simple renal cyst is a very common finding in ultrasound. Based on the characteristics mentioned in the ultrasound and the size of the cyst, you have nothing to worry about at all. It may not resolve with time, but it requires no treatment.
