What is kidney cyst?

Kidney cyst is a fluid-filled sac. One or several cysts can be found on the kidney. It has two types: simple kidney cyst and complex kidney cyst. In general, simple kidney cyst has a better prognosis than the complex ones.

What will happen if you have kidney cyst?

In the beginning, the cyst is too small to cause symptoms. As time goes by, it grows and will compress the nearby tissues. As a result, symptoms may occur:

● Pain in the back, flank, or abdomen. The painful feeling is always dull, and can becomes sharp when the cyst get infected.

● Enlarged kidneys

● High blood pressure: Enlarged kidney cysts compress the renal tissues, stimulation the kidneys to secrete more hormones that will raise the blood pressure.

● Renal dysfunction

The cyst compresses the renal tissues, leading to ischemia and anoxia of the kidney. With time goes by, the kidneys are damaged due to lack of blood and oxygen. As a result, the kidneys cannot function well, causing wastes and toxins accumulating in the body.

These harmful wastes and toxins can deposit in any part of the body. Patients may experience nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, muscle cramps, kidney stone, urinary tract infection, and even brain aneurysm. These above symptoms are the common dangers of kidney cysts. Not everyone will experience these symptoms. In some cases, they can live a normal life with kidney cyst.
