I. There are many reasons for pain in abdomen. If the pain is not where the kidney with cysts are, one has to find another reasons.
The cortical cysts never cause pain unless they is an internal bleeding - which is picked up on sonography.
What are other associated symptoms?
Which side is the pain in abdomen?

I m a 5 10 female, 25 years old, 122 pounds. I have been feeling a dull and often pinching pain on my right lower abdomen. It presents a small bulge, that I can t push in. Went to 4 surgeons and they don t think its a hernia, but from a bike fall that I had 6 months ago (I did 3 MRIs and 3 ultra sounds, and nothing showed). It really hurts when I am sitting for too long, and I feel discomfort like something is pressuring my abdominal wall. Please help.
