Is Having a Cyst in a Kidney Anything to Worry AboutKidney cyst is one common disorder for the elderly. In some cases, kidney cyst is asymptomatic, while in some other cases, kidney cyst may cause some symptoms. Well then, is having a cyst in a kidney anything to worry about?

The answer is determined by the size, location and type of kidney cyst.

It is reported that more than half of people above 50 years old have at least one kidney cyst. If the renal cyst is small, located in the inner part of kidneys and simple, patients don’t need to be worried. This is because our kidneys are so great organs that can bear up to 5 small cysts with small size. Thereby, the size is the most important factor that determines the severity of kidney cyst.

The cyst in the outer part of kidneys is usually more serious than that in the inner part. The reason is that cysts in the outer part of kidneys rupture easily. Once kidney cyst bursts, it may cause urinary tract infection, hematuria and back pain easily.

According to the different substances and characteristics, kidney cyst is divided into simple kidney cyst and complex kidney cyst. According to clinical research, patients with complex kidney cyst have a high risk of kidney cancer. Therefore, patients should take it seriously to avoid serious complications.
