Cysts in kidney
Posted: Thu Mar 01, 2018 11:04 am
Can cysts in the kidney cause blood in the urine. I have to self catheterise, and always have blood in the urine whenever it is tested. I have been told there are cysts in my left kidney, but nothing has been done about them.

Cysts in the kidney are very common and most people over 50 will have at least one. They don’t generally cause any issues unless really huge.
They don’t cause bleeding in the urine but it is possible to get bleeding into a cyst occasionally
Blood in the urine should be investigated with a cystoscopy telescope inspection of the bladder in addition to a scan to get the full all clear.
