Why do PKD patients have back pain?

If you happen to have this problem, you must know Polycystic Kidney Disease is characterized by numerous kidney cysts. All of these cysts are located in renal tubules, which is one important part of renal cortex. As time goes on, kidney cysts will become bigger and bigger and compress their surrounding kidney tissues and other organs. Then, back pain occurs easily because of enlarged kidney cysts.

In addition to large kidney cysts, kidney cyst rupture, urinary tract infections and kidney stone are also reasons for back pain for PKD patients.

How to manage back pain from polycystic kidneys?
