As we all know, our kidneys are great excretory organs that have strong capacity. Kidneys can still work normally, if only one or two small cysts grow in kidneys. Otherwise, you may need to take highly attention in the following conditions.

Different from simple kidney cyst, PKD or multiple kidney cysts may eventually cause kidney failure. From this point, you should make clear the type of kidney cyst firstly.
