Suggest treatment for cortical cyst in mid pole of the kidney

I have a 1.2 cm cortical cyst in my mid pole on my kept kidney that was in 2008, my doctor said since it's not a tumor, no further treatment is needed. I was crying that time when I found out but my urologist got upset with me and said even if you go to a different doctor they will not do anything.

Urologist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, let me assure you that, a simple cortical cyst is normal.
You should mention your age and gender.
A very important thing you should do is, to get an annual scan, to see if, there's any change in size of cyst or within the cyst.
A single, simple cyst is best left alone.
So, don't worry at all. But, go and get another scan done.
You may send me the report, as a direct question, for expert opinion.
Dr.Matthew J. Mangat.
