Multiple kidney cyst: The vast majority of renal cysts and benign simple cysts which are a symptomatic and causes no problems. It is not the same as polycystic kidney disease, where many cysts on both kidneys could lead to kidney failure.

Yes and no: A benign kidney mass, the most common is called a simple cyst, does not cause kidney stones. Stasis of urine, diet and genetics cause stones.

No: They are separate disorders. Polycystic kidney disease is an inherited disorder due to a specific genetic alteration.

Polycystic ovarian: This syndrome is not known to predispose to secondary infection. The two things that might increase risk of UTI are enlarged ovaries placing pressure with partial obstruction on the urinary tract, and diabetes mellitus which is a complication of polycystic ovarian syndrome. These, however, are two steps removed from the primary condition and do not think they are worth worrying about. Good luck. ...Read more

Punctate nonobstructing calcific fleck found on left kidney pelvis. I must control stone-mkg w/ Urocit-K. Will this fleck get bigger or pass?
Stone passable: If stone is described as punctate it is likely only a millimeter or two in diameter which makes it a good bet to pass if it moves into the kidney tube (ureter). If you are on Urocit K (potassium citrate) I assume that you have been diagnosed with a low citrate level and this medication supplements the level which can prevent certain calcium crystals from forming. Key is to have stone monitored, with good hydration ...Read more
