Complex cysts are classified according to changes they have like multiple septa, thickness of septa, calcification, hemorrhage, necrotic component etc. Multiple complex cysts with multiple simple cysts are usually non cancerous.

There is a classification of kidney cysts called as Bosniak which may help in determining the chance of cancer in complex cysts. Please read it in this resource;
