For the treatment of kidney cyst, choose traditional Chinese medicine or western medicine?
Renal cyst is often found by chance during physical examination. Most renal cysts do not cause any symptoms at this time, but it is still a " time bomb" buried in the patient's heart. There are also many patients who discovered it only when they caused pain in the waist or urinary tract infection such as frequent urination, urgency, pain in urination and blood urination.
Western medicine treatment of renal cyst:
Chinese medicine vs western medicine
Western medicine believes that renal cysts may be caused by various external factors, such as weakening of the basement membrane of renal tubules and gradual formation of diverticulum, or leading to abnormal metabolism of tubule epithelial cells and shedding and hyperplasia, or ischemia and fibrosis of medulla and papillary stroma, which may cause tubule obstruction and cause cysts to occur. For this reason, western medicine has taken advantage of surgical advantages to treat renal cyst according to the microscopic understanding of the disease, including fine needle aspiration and open surgery. The former is to pierce the cyst from the skin with a long puncture needle under the guidance of B - ultrasound and aspirate the cyst fluid. Avoiding the pain of operation, the effect on a single cyst is immediate, but it is easy to relapse after puncture, and other small cysts are also easy to increase. Although the recurrence rate of the operation is low, it can only be aimed at some large cysts, and it is also harmful to take the operation, and it is not easy to remove the deep cysts and leave a long surgical scar on the waist.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatment for Renal Cyst;
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the occurrence of renal cyst is mostly due to the deficiency of internal factors and body endowment, and its pathogenesis is: Kidney essence is deficient, qi and blood are not smooth, phlegm and turbidity are endogenous, veins are blocked, and phlegm and blood stasis intersect at the waist. It is also related to emotional changes, improper work and leisure, and poor diet. According to the holistic view, traditional Chinese medicine based on syndrome differentiation and treatment mostly adopts the traditional Chinese medicine of promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis for symptomatic treatment, which is effective but often slow.
