Renal cysts occur in a variety of genetic diseases in adults and children, but ââ"simple renal cysts" are commonly observed in normal kidneys. They are so âcommon, it is difficult to consider them a disease. â
Simple cysts are round and have one wall, much like a ping pong ball. They ârarely require treatment.
Complex cysts have walls within the outer wall or are a collection of small âcysts. The latter can harbor cancerous masses.â
In your case, additional investigations need to be done to get more details, so that proper assessment of further management can be done.
