ruptured cyst/how to prevent cyst growth?

Postby » Tue Sep 01, 2015 5:14 pm

This past weekend I had a fever and significant flank pain, but no blood in my urine. When this continued for a couple days, I went to the Emergency room. They admitted me overnight, gave me antibiotics and I was discharged. What is the normal treatment for ruptured cysts?
Also, what can I do to prevent cysts from growing?
