Bilateral Renal Cysts
Is it normal for 35 y/o non-alcoholic female w/o family history of PKD to develop multiple painful bilateral renal cysts, high urine output & high bp?
Isolated PKD: PKD is autosomal dominant. One PKD allele is all that is needed to express PKD. Expression is over 90%. What you report is not normal, nor usual. Over 90% of expressed, affected persons have an affected parent. Yet, old data indicate that ~10% of affected persons do not have a parent with expressed PKD. Yet new data reveal that PKD gene mutations do exist in a parent without expression. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No.: "bilateral renal cysts" means that both kidneys (right and left) contain cysts. While some kidney cancers may be cystic, most renal cysts are benign. It would be good to ask the doctor who ordered the imaging study that found the renal cysts what he/she thinks of these cysts and the likelihood that they might be cancer. Every case is unique. Hope that this helps. ...Read more
I have pelvic ultrasound yesterday and found out tiny non obstructing nephrolithiasis, bilateral; small renal cyst measuring 9mm, left.Should i worry?
No: Small kidney cysts are pretty common. And small non obstructing stones should not cause much issue especially if you have a history of prior stones. If concerned, check with your urologist or physician who ordered the tests. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not much, but: Need a follow up ultrasound in a few years to see if increasing suggestive of polycystic kidney disease (pkd). If this is the case there is a chance to lose kidney function over long years. It is not a cancer. But increasing cysts number and size can overtake kidneys. Chances are, none of that will happen to you. But, better safe than sorry. Pkd is a benign and slow condition but may cause failure. ...Read more
