Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

There are cysts on both sides.
The cyst on the left side is small and 'simple' - nothing need be done for it except to repeat the scan after 6 months.
The one on the right side is big and could be 'complex' - it needs further assessment and assistance by a specialist - UROLOGIST. Earlier, the better. You may need CT scan, biopsy and so on for a definite diagnosis. Management will depend on the diagnosis.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
