Hi all, I hope it is ok to post here, but I found this site when searching for info about complex renal cysts. My child has an approximately 1cm complex cyst on his kidney with one or two "areas of septation." It is thin septation but report doesn't say how thin (ie paper thin). The urologist said they don't use Bosniak classification in children (is this true?) so I do not know where it would fall on the scale and am very confused about how common a complex cyst in a child is, what are the chances of malignancy now or in the future, etc.
We are waiting on an MRI to be scheduled.
The nephrologist said he has never seen one in a child before. The urologist thought it was a simple cyst looking at the ultrasound himself but when he asked a different radiologist it was called complex and MRI recommended. Urologist still seems very non-concerned. Everything we read online points us to being very concerned, though. However, very little information seems to be available on these cysts in children.
Very concerned about the possibility of RCC.
Would appreciate any info, advice or others' experiences with this type of cyst, especially in children. Thanks very much.
