I m trying to understand my ultrasound of kidney report. It says Impression: LEFT RENAL CYST . There is a 1.9x1.9x2.1 cm cyst in the left kidney. Rena cortical echogenicity is normal and no hydronephrosis or perirenal fluid collection are identified. Based on what I read, it doesn t look that bad...what do you think?

Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
Renal cortical cysts are very common and more are diagnosed after the usage of ultrasound scans as an aid to diagnose abdominal pain.
It is usually of no consequence but it is medically advised to repeat the scan in one year time.
Wish you good health----
