Hello, and thanks for your medical question on E Health Forum.
From the history and ultrasound results provided it seems that you have kidney cysts.
There is nothing to worry about such renal cysts.
The simple kidney cyst is a fluid filled spherical space within the kidney. A simple kidney cyst has no risk of becoming a kidney cancer and is therefore nothing to worry about. Usually as age progresses 50% of most adults develop cysts in the kidneys which increase in size as well.
If you are over 50 years old and you do not have a simple cyst, you are therefore in the minority of people.
Simple kidney cysts have no clinical implications. Usually, simple kidney cysts do not result in any symptoms and cause no harm to the body. On rare occasions, a cyst may cause symptoms such as flank pain, but this is quite unusual. If a simple kidney cyst is believed to cause pain or another symptom, it can usually be treated by a radiologist who can perform aspiration and sclerosis of the simple kidney cyst under radiographic guidance with ultrasound or CT scanning.
