Brief Answer:
Nothing worrisome

Detailed Answer:
Your symptoms are not really worrisome. Itching indicates some allergic condition. You must have had some allergy. Spontaneous bruising is due to disorder in blood clotting machanism. It can be identified by blood tests and treatment can be offered accordingly.

Coming to your question of cysts in ovaries and kidneys. Remember not all cysts are cancers. Majority of them are benign and asymptomatic and come and go spontaneously. They dont require treatment. If ovarian cysts are large with solid components which are called complex ovarian cysts, they require evaluation. Simple cysts dont require any other tests.

There dont seem to be any relationship between cysts and bruising. If bruising is spontaneous you only require tests for that and you symptoms would subside with symptomatic treatment.

In short, I don't seen anything alarming. You can discuss with your primary care provider to look into each of these conditions and order for respective tests.

Take care
