2014-06-27 00:49

Will Kidney Cyst Cause Colon PressureKidney cyst is a fluid-filled sacs that will grow with age. Patients can be found that there is one or several cysts inside or outside their kidneys. In the early stage, the cyst is not so big that will compress the nearby tissues or organs. However, when they grow to 3-5cm, they start to compress some organs nearby kidneys. Therefore kidney cyst possibly causes colon pressure.

Apart from colon pressure, enlarged kidney cysts may cause some other symptoms and complications, such as:

1. Pain in kidney area

Pain in the kidney area is the most commonly seen when the cysts begin to compress the tissues. Since the cyst is so large, the nerves are affected, patients will often feel pain in the flank, back, or both sides. It is not common that the cyst cause colon pressure, but it is not impossible because the colon is near by the kidneys. At the beginning, the pain is dull and not frequent and once the cyst get infected, the pain becomes severe and appears suddenly.

2. High blood pressure

Enlarged kidney cysts compress the blood vessel, causing a reduced blood volume in the kidneys, and then they produce more angiotensins, which will make the blood pressure elevated. You can say that high blood pressure is the most horrible complication because uncontrolled hypertension is likely to lead to kidney failure.

3. Infection

If the kidney cyst ruptures, it will cause urinary tract infection when the cystic fluids flow into the urethra. In that case, patients will experience some urine changes such as frequent urine, painful urine, and increase urine output at night.

The above mentioned is some possible bad results. Some kidney cyst may cause no symptoms and thus is harmless. Generally, those cysts are called “simple kidney cysts” in clinic. The other type—complex kidney cysts, is more serious. However, both the two types can be dangerous when they grow beyond 3-5cm or rupture.
