Stages of Kidney CystsKidney cyst is a common type of kidney disease. It has two types: simple and complex kidney cyst. Generally speaking, it develops slowly. In clinic, based on the severity of kidney cyst, this disease is divided into four stages, which are as follows.

Four Stages of kidney cyst

Stage 1: At this stage, no obvious symptoms occur. Patients can only find kidney test in a ultrasound or CT test occasionally.

Stage 2: This stage is characterized by some common symptoms such as high blood pressure, enlarged kidneys and cyst, lower back pain, flank pain or abdominal pain. These symptoms might be the reason why people want to do a test so that they find cysts on the kidneys.

Stage 3: It is called “Renal Insufficiency Period”, which means the kidneys have been attacked by the cyst and lose some of the function of regulating blood pressure and maintaining water balance. At this stage, serum creatinine and BUN (blood urea nitrogen) greatly elevate.

Stage 4: End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). It is characterized by GFR(glomerular filtration rate) less than 15ml/min. The kidneys are severely damaged, and needs dialysis immediately.

Treatments for shrinking kidney cyst
