Dear Sir,
many times incidental findings can be seen on ultrasound which might not be related to the symptoms for which the scan was done. Simple renal cysts generally do not cause any pain and /or other symptoms and are best left alone. You might take a second opinion to satisfy yourself that there is nothing wrong but I don't see a compelling medical reason to do so.
