A kidney cyst is a small pocket filled with fluid and located in the kidneys. Many kidney cysts are benign, and patients with Kidney Cyst can live without any symptom. Kidney cysts can be detected by ultrasound, MRI, or another type of medical imagingstudy in the course of a medical examination and medical testing. It can be divided into simple cysts and complex cysts. Let’s learn some basic knowledge, causes and symptoms about kidney cysts.

Simple cysts

Simple cysts are the most common type of kidney cyst and different from polycystic kidney disease, which is a genetic disorder. The cyst shows up as a fluid-filled pocket, and if the cyst is aspirated, it can contain clear to yellowish fluid, sometimes mixed with blood. Simple cysts can not enlarge the kidneys, replace their normal structure, or cause reduced kidney function. Simple kidney cysts are more common as people age.
