Thanks for your query.

If she Is asymptomatic , she might not need any active Intervention.

If she develops symptoms like pain In loin or hematuria, you need to consult a urologist.

Cyst means a swelling which Is hollow like balloon.

Cortical means It Is placed In the outer layer of kidney.

Even the size of the cyst matters which you have not mentioned about.Hope I have answered your query

I will be available for your follow up queries If any.

Wishing you good health.
