Can Alcohol Cause Cyst on KidneysKidney cysts are small fluid-filled sacs that form in the kidneys. According to the Kidney & Urology Foundation of America, the cause of kidney cysts is still unknown. Drinking alcohol is not considered a cause of kidney cysts. In fact, some kidney cysts are treated with high concentrations of alcohol.

Causes of kidney cyst?

1. Congenital factor

Most of the people get kidney cyst from heredity or genetic disorder. Therefore, for those who have a family history of kidney cyst, they should have a regular urine and blood test and check their kidney function once every year or half a year.

2. Infection

Infections caused by outside environment will change the normal order of the body, stimulating the formation and development of renal cyst. Common infection include the upper upper respiratory infection (URI), urinary tract infection (UTI), gastrointestinal tract infection, skin infection, and traumatic infection.

3. Toxins

Toxins contained in medicines and heavy metals can cause injury on the tissues and organs of the body. Toxin is also an inducing factor of renal cyst.

4. Unhealthy dietary habit

Diet is an important factor that you cannot ignore. Spicy and greasy foods and alcohol are known as bad choices for kidney cyst.

From the above listed, you may get a general understanding of the causes of renal cyst. No matter what the causes are, treatment is the concern.


If the cyst is less than 3cm and cause no symptoms, no treatment is needed, but a regular test is necessary.

When the cyst grows more than 3cm and cause pain in the back, flank or abdomen, or high blood pressure, you should take some methods to stop the development of the cyst. I strongly recommend you take Chinese herbs, because they are natural and effective.
