Complex kidney cysts are one type of renal cyst.To be defined as a complex kidney cyst, the cyst must have some type of irregularities inside of it like septation.Many complex kidney cysts may have a low risk for being or becoming a kidney cancer. They will require evaluation by an urologist.If the size has increased the i would say that chances of cancer are there.You need to ask the specialist if he can determine whether the cyst is cancerous or not.If so,the treatment will depend on that.Mostly surgery will be required.
