Kidney cyst is a fluid-filled sac. You can find one or several cysts on the kidneys. They can be either benign or malignant. When the kidney cyst become very big, it can compress nearby organs, including the kidney itself. As a result, the blood volume flowing to the kidneys reduces, causing ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys. Many renal tissues start fibrosis because of lack of oxygen and blood supply. As more and more nephrons dead, your kidney function numbers drop.
