Swollen forehand. No previous injury. Cyst or related to kidney stones?

my right forehand has been swollen which looks like a lump for 4 weeks with no previous skin or injury such as a cut or briuse. If I use the left hand it will swell the size of a base ball ane the left finger also become inflamed in conjunction. There was no previous injury or open wounds. Could this be cyst growth on my right hand or associated with kidney stones which I have right now?

Both kidney cyst and hand swelling are unlikely to be related to each other.
Most simple kidney cysts are asymptomatic, common with increasing age and don't generally need any treatment.
