    What Are The Dangers of Having An Enlarged KidneyEnlarged kidney can be caused by many reasons, like hydronephrosis caused by kidney stone, kidney cyst, PKD, tumor, and even alcoholism. However, the most common causes of enlarged should be kidney cyst or PKD. PKD means patients can have cysts in both of their kidneys. Kidney cyst is more likely to appear in unilateral kidney, and it is the most common renal cystic disease.

    Thereby, if patient has an enlarged kidney, and if it is caused by cyst, it should be caused by simple kidney cyst. Well then, what are the dangers of having a enlarged kidney?

    Kidney cyst is the most common cause of an enlarged kidney, and it grow bigger and bigger, which can damage patient’s kidney function in this process. Thereby, Kidney Cyst can also cause damage to patient’s kidney function.

    However, kidney cyst usually just causes damage in one kidney, so it will not cause too severe damage to patient’s overall kidney function, but it will still cause some problems to patient’s health.

    When kidney cyst is bigger than 3cm, it will be able to cause damage to patient’s kidney, and patient’s kidney function will go down. In fact, even patient may just have a single cyst in his kidney, but it is still able to cause severe damage to his kidney structure.

    2. High blood pressure:

    The enlarged kidney cyst can oppress patient’s kidney structure, and that can cause patients to have the shortage of blood flow in kidney, which can stimulate the secretion of renin and cause hypertension. Hypertension is very dangerous, and it can cause damage in many organs of patient’s body, including kidney.

    3. Urinary tract infection:

    The obstruction in renal calyce can cause patients to have urinary tract infection, and that is a major reason for patients with kidney cyst to have kidney pain. If patients have severe urinary tract infection, patients may need to accept nephrectomy.

    Thereby, even patients with kidney cyst can have a better prognosis, it still can bring some dangerous problems, and it is necessary for patients to deal with their condition positively.
