Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
Simple renal cortical cysts have been increasingly found due to widespread usage of ultrasound scan for abdominal pain.
These cysts need no intervention and need only yearly scan to check for any alarming changes that need intervention.
The chest pain is unrelated.
