Thanks for the query.

I went through the details submitted with.

You need to get contrast enhanced computerised tomography (CECT) and get back to us with the exact findings of CT scan.

If this cyst has been reported on CECT then you should certainly see urologist and may have to be operated also.

I will be available for further comments after hearing from you.

Take care.
