Hello!

Thank you for the query.

It all depends how large is this cyst. Generally renal cyst is a very common finding (about 30% of people has a cyst). Cyst is nothing more than empty space filled with clear fluid. Mostly it is a simple cyst.
If there is no mass in it (no cancer suspicion) and the cyst is not large (like a half size of a kidney) there is no reason to worry. Such cyst should be under observation only. You should have an ultrasound once a year to have it controlled.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

Renal cyst is not a disease. So no medicine is necessary. And there is no medicine which would make this cyst disappear.
If it really bothers you, please consult urologist. But in my opinion it does not need any treatment. Just an observation.

Hope this will help.
Regards.
