Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Your mother had Urinary tract infection along with uncontrolled diabetes.

The cyst on the right kidney needs to be investigated further.

It needs to be assessed whether it is infected cyst or indeterminate cyst.

She needs to be subjected to contrast CT(computerised tomography) scan and exact nature of cyst ascertained.

Hope i have answered your query.I will be available for follow up.
