Thanks for the query.
The problems while passing urine could well be due to the enlarged prostate. See a urologist who can prescribe medications like tamsulosin which are helpful in this condition.
The renal cysts are usually benign and need no active treatment. We need to monitor their size by doing a yearly scan.
Hope this helps
Good luck
