You are absolutely alright and you shouldn't worry about your health.But you need routine examination and can be done on yearly basis due to your age.
Routine investigations include hemogram,RBS,LFT,RFT,Urine RE/ME,Stool examination routine and microscopic,Ultrasound of abdomen and further investigations can be done if needed.
Slight smell in urine is normal.Besides this,investigations can detect any infection.

Your USG report of scrotum is normal.Cyst is due to increased age and it is normal in this age.
Antibiotic trail for five days can be given.

Get well soon.
