Can cysts on kidneys be mistaken for adrenal tumours, and cause multiple systemic problems

Likely not.: Radiologists are well trained to distinguish kidney from adrenal cysts on imaging films.Most cysts are benign however if they are many with walls or septa inside, they may cause back pain, get infected, elevate bp. They usually don't cause systemic problems.Take care and god bless u! http://www.M.Webmd.Com/a-to-z-guides/kidney-cyst-causes-symptoms-treatments.
