Brief Answer: No. Mostly simple cysts. Need USG monitoring only. Detailed Answer: Hello, I have gone through your query and understand your concern. No. Most of us will have numbers of kidney cysts which are benign. As we get older we practically all get them. Thus Cysts in kidney are nothing to be concerned about. Just periodic monitoring of cysts by ultrasound once in a year is enough. And also this not symptomatic, nothing to be concerned about kidney cysts now. Please follow your surgeon and Oncologist advice on cancer spread in nodes. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.
