A Tender, Painful Knot in Back of PKD Patient

I have PKD and had a very tender, painful knot in my back. What do you think that was? I don't believe it was a cyst that popped.

The Doctor Answered:

A Tender, Painful Knot in Back of PKD PatientAs you know, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) causes numerable cysts on bilateral kidneys. Several big cysts can be easily detected under imaging machine. In some cases, patients can even feel large cyst through skin.

When the cyst is under great pressure from outside world such as pression, clash, bending movement, it may burst. That should be controlled immediately to prevent infection.

When that happens, patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease may experience sharp back pain, fever, chills or blood in urine, etc. You should be concerned about kidney cyst rupture. In some serious cases, the cyst fluid may cause kidney infection or polluted the blood, leading to sepsis.

If you don’t believe it is a cyst that popped, you can do a test and find the real cause.

I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs to shrink kidney cysts. The effective ingredients can inhibit the cyst epithelial cells from secreting fluid any more, thus stopping cyst fluid secretion. On the other hand, they can increase blood circulation so that fluid can be reabsorbed into blood vessels, and then discharged by kidneys as urine.

Commonly used herbal therapies include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, and Steam Therapy, etc. They are all external applications and are very natural for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients.
