Polycystic Kidney Disease, which I assume is what you're referring to, is a genetic condition. Either someone, in his family, has/had the disease or he doesn't. Genetic testing can determine whether your husband has PKD or simple kidney cysts.


Zoloft is, rarely, associated with kidney problems but I don't believe any cases of cysts have been reported.
