Home/ News / Kidney cysts: When should you worry?

Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can form in the skin or any other internal organ of the body. One such organ where cysts can lead to potential complications is the kidney. According to the National Institute of Health, while there is no known cause of kidney cysts, their likelihood increases with age, which is more prevalent in men than in women. “Cysts might contain urine, water or other bodily fluids,” says Dr Rushi Deshpande, nephrologist, HN Reliance Hospital, Mumbai. Kidney cysts do not show any symptoms unless they get infected or start affecting kidney function, says Dr Deshpande.
