A kidney cyst – or kidney mass – is a pouch of fluid that forms on or in the kidney. In most cases, kidney cysts are noncancerous (benign) and don’t cause serious complications.
Sometimes, however, a kidney cyst can be associated with a serious, underlying disorder that can impact your kidney’s ability to function. The urologic specialists at the University of Miami Health System have years of experience in diagnosing and treating kidney cysts and masses.
In many cases, you won’t experience any symptoms with a kidney cyst or mass. When they do occur, signs and symptoms can include:
- Pain in the back or side
- Pain in the upper abdomen
