Welcome to HCM.
The simple cyst is small and the parapelvic cysts if small in size, may not need any intervention unless symptomatic.
Scars are suggestive of previous infection.
You need to undergo renal function tests to know the functional status at present and yearly scans of the kidneys to look for any changes that can occur.
Wishing you good health
