Other Causes for 14 Cysts in the Right Kidney If Not PKD

Other Causes for 14 Cysts in the Right Kidney If Not PKDIf there are several cysts in the kidneys but they are not caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease, we call them multiple kidney cysts. Making clear the causes of this problem can help prevent multiple kidney cysts and protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues.

The different causes between Polycystic Kidney Disease and multiple kidney cysts

Polycystic Kidney Disease is one inherited kidney disorder, while multiple kidney cysts can be either congenital or caused by trauma, inflammation and tumors. From this point, we can know the causes of multiple kidney cysts are more fickle than PKD. Furthermore, even though multiple kidney cysts and PKD both can be due to congenital disorder, they are not the same diseases.

If you have 14 kidney cysts but not due to Polycystic Kidney Disease, it is more likely to indicate multiple kidney cysts. First of all, you should detect the underlying cause, and then doctors can guide you to control them correctly.

The other difference between these two problems

1. Family history: There are usually other members with this disease for PKD patients, while no family member has the same illness history for patients with multiple kidney cysts.

2. Sac contents: Sac fluid in PKD kidney cysts is usually urine, but sac fluid in multiple kidney cysts is body fluid that contains red blood cells.

3. Complications and dangers: PKD is usually accompanied by blood urine, high blood pressure, swelling, renal insufficiency or even uremia, while patients with multiple kidney cysts usually don't have high blood pressure and renal insufficiency.

4. Prevention: The treatment for PKD focuses on easing patients' symptoms, while small multiple kidney cysts can be removed.

From the above analysis, we can know multiple kidney cyst is quite different from Polycystic Kidney Disease. If you want to get personal treatment plan in detail, you can leave a message below or email to
