Cyst on kidney, back pain. Should i get it removed? What more can i do?

I just had an MRI for my lower back and the report said there was a 2.7 x 2.4 cortical cyst on my left kidney . I have made an appointment to see my primary care doctor tomorrow but am unsure of what questions I should ask. Needless to say I was not expecting this and from what I have read there is no need to be alarmed. I don t believe I am having any symptoms as my back pain I thought was due to the horrible condition of my lower back. What would be some appropriate questions to ask? Should I get further testing? Should I have the cyst removed so I don t experience any type of kidney damage? Any questions you can as wear would be greatly appreciated.

Cortical cyst of 2.7 x 2.4 does not cause any problem.It is an incidental finding.I have seen these type of cysts in very large number of patients without any problem.
Your back ache may be due to musculo skeletal pain.
Please take skeletal muscle relaxant and B complex with antioxidant tablet.
Everything will be alright.
No further tests are needed
Nothing to worry
Wish you good health
