good day !

you would need to consult a Urologist.

Small renal cortical cyst are benign conditions meaning these cortical cyst doesn't cause any medical conditions unless they grow big as big as the kidney.

the small echogenic focus are kidney stones and the size is also very small. I would suggest medical dissolution with potassium citrate and repeating the ultrasound after a month.

I hope I have answered your question.
