Get facts on effects of kidney cyst on the liver

Well, if you are diagnosed with just one kidney cyst, you are not possibly have liver damage. Liver cysts is a common complication of ADPKD (Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease).

Symptoms of a renal cyst

When the cyst is small, it is not serious as it won’t cause any symptoms. You just need a routine test to monitor the growth of cysts to prevent from a cyst rupture.

When the cyst enlarges (usually 3-5cm), it starts to compress nearby organs, including the kidney itself. The capsule of kidneys are stretched, resulting in the possible following symptoms, such as:

-Back pain, side pain, and abdominal pain

-High blood pressure

-Nausea or vomiting

If the cyst gets infected or ruptures, patients may experience:

-Chill or/and fever

-Blood in urine

-Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

Symptoms of liver cyst

Most of the time, people with liver cyst have no symptoms. However, if the liver becomes enlarged and riddled with cysts, symptoms may include:

-Abdominal pain

-Bloating or swelling in the abdomen

-Feeling full

Only about one out of every 10 people with PLD has problems associated with it.

Other complications may include:

-Bleeding into a cyst

-Infection of a cyst

-Bile duct obstruction and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)

Treatment for kidney and liver cyst

No treatment is needed if there is no symptoms. When problems occur, medication is needed. What medicines are needed is based on the symptoms. However, medicines cannot help you shrink the cyst, but may cause further kidney damage with long-term and large dosage. Therefore, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs.
