Good Day!

1. Calculus in lower pole - you have a stone on the lower pole of your left kidney, it is a small stone 0.4 cm and can be treated medically for stone dissolution. It is too small to be treated surgically or on any invasive procedure. I would suggest drinking plenty of water for the size not to increase.

2. Cortical cysts - cortical cyst or simple cyst are not clinically significant. it does not cause pain nor does it become cancer. No need to be worried about this finding.

3. Extra renal pelvis - extra renal pelvis means that you were born with the tube that connects your kidney to your urinary bladder developed outside the kidney. It is a normal variant and does not have an clinical consequence.

Thank You.
