Simple kidney cysts typically don't cause signs or symptoms. If a simple kidney cyst grows large enough, symptoms may include:

  • Dull pain in your back or side
  • Fever
  • Upper abdominal pain

When to see a doctor

Make an appointment with your doctor if you have signs or symptoms of a kidney cyst.
