Hello madam ,
I appreciate your concern for your friend. But with cysts in the kidney, it isnt good to donate, as the kidney might not function to the extent desired once transplanted. Having said that we need the size of the cysts, your age , to decide on the severity of cysts.
Hope i was of help.
