Why does kidney cyst bleed?

The inside contents of the cyst is clear fluid or blood enclosed within their walls. At times, a renal cyst may hemorrhage or even rupture. What ensues after such a hemorrhage will depend on the size, location and the nature of the cyst. The reason behind the bleeding of the cyst could be the pressure exerted on an enlarged and growing cyst present on the surface of the kidney by the surrounding organs. This can lead to rupturing of the cyst.

Trauma during surgery might also cause the cyst to hemorrhage or rupture.

Symptoms of a hemorrhagic kidney cyst

In severe cases, one might experience symptoms such as back pain, flank pain, abdominal pain, and blood in urine. Medically referred to as hematuria, blood in the urine is one of the common symptoms of hemorrhagic cyst. While hemorrhage of a simple cyst might resolve on its own, this might not be the case with complex cysts or malignant renal masses. If the fluid inside the cyst was infected, then the hemorrhage could lead to Sepsis. The pain one might experience might be a result of blood infection. If not treated soon, a life-threatening situation might arise.


Painkillers are far enough. Surgeries are always taken to drain the fluid in case of infection. Decortication and Aspiration are the mostly common types of surgery. However, surgery has some side effects and cannot solve the underlying problem. If you are searching for some natural alternative treatments for kidney cyst, you can contact us.
