What are the inheritance patterns for polycystic kidney inheritance?

Two of my mother's brothers have polycystic kidneys, so I was wondering, is there any chance that I could have the kidney disorder too? Like it could have passed by my mom but I might have it? Just wondering, thanks. :)

    Either or both parents can carry the gene. Carriers don't necessarily have it but can pass it on. If both parents have it, you are more likely to have PCKD.
