    For the question, we have consulted the kidney expert who come from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Treatment Center. And the kidney expert points out, whether a renal cortical cyst is dangerous has nothing to do with its location. Because the cyst can occur in the upper pole, middle pole and lower pole of either kidneys. However, the sizes and types of cysts can determine how dangerous your illness condition is.

    As a matter of fact, renal cortical cyst is very common and occurs in about 50% of people over the age of 50. Kidney cysts have two types, namely Simple Kidney Cysts and Complex Kidney Cyst. Many people have them and it is usually benign. And most patients can live with it without knowing its existence when cysts are in small size. However, cyst on the kidney, over time will increase and enlarge. No matter which types cysts you have, when cysts become big enough, it will oppress the kidney itself and other organs. In the condition, some obvious symptoms will be induced, like back pain, blood in urine, urinary tract infection, high blood pressure, swelling and so on.
