What Are the Signs That the Renal Cyst Has GrownPeople who are diagnosed with renal cyst know that the cyst will grow with age. Renal cyst can be benign or associated with Polycystic Kidney Disease. In either case, the enlarged kidney cyst should be your concern. Therefore, people want to know what the signs are that the renal cyst has grown. This article can help you to take some measures to prevent or at least slow down the progression of kidney cyst.

1. A regular test

When the cyst is too small to cause symptoms, you can just monitor its growth by a regular test, including X-ray, ultrasound, computerized tomography or CT scan, andmagnetic resonance imaging or MRI.

2. Signs of enlarged kidney cyst

When the renal cyst grows to a certain large size (usually more than 3cm), it becomes symptomatic and you can know the cyst has grown by such symptoms such as:

-  Back pain, flank pain, abdominal pain. The pain normally comes suddenly and is dull.

- High blood pressure. The enlarged kidney cyst compresses the nearby tissues, stimulating the kidney to secret more hormones that will raise the blood pressure.

- Urinary changes. Firstly, your urine output becomes frequent and urgent, especially at night. Secondly, you may also see persistent and numerous tiny bubbles in the urine. Thirdly, the urine is present with pink, red, or dark brown color, which indicated hematuria.

- Urinary tract infection. Repeated urinary tract infection (UTI) is very serious, because this condition is always associated with cyst infection.

Except the above common symptoms, there are also some other signs that you may ignore, for example, fatigue, dizziness, sleep disorder, or pale skin color.
