Kidney cysts are round pouches of fluid that form on the kidneys.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Kidney cysts are round pouches of fluid that form on or in the kidneys.

They usually are benign and don't cause signs or symptoms.

They usually don't require treatment.

I suggest you to do some examinations to check the kidney function.

Creatinine level

Azotemia level

A urine test

A complete blood count

If the kidney function is normal, no treatment may be required.

Other possible treatments can be puncturing and draining the cyst, or removing the cyst.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
