Hello and welcome to HealthcareMagic!!
Lets divide ur problem
1. High creat can be due to BPH or due to Hypertensive nephropathy, its just high normal and u have nothing to worry about if u r still having good urine output
2. Back pain might be chronic in nature, avoid taking painkillers because ur creat is a lil high
3. Pain abdomen could be due to the cyst but since it is only 3mm it is very unlikely so that needs a USG Abd, USG abd and pelvis will also tell u about the state of your kidney
