: At the end of December 1999 due to my ill health I was sent by a Physician to have ultrasounds of my organs and Xrays of my lungs. The Radiologists report stated a small cyst on left kidney. The Physician whom I was seeing at the time said no reason for concern and shrugged it off as being a common thing. I had been having problems with pain in kidney area and urine problems along with a number of other health issues. Very occasionally now I get pain in kidney but am still puzzled as to what the cyst may be. Dealing with the Specialist Physician was most unsatisfactory and I will not revisit him but I would be pleased to hear of others who have had "just a common (don't worry) type of cyst" on their kidney.
: Any information via my email address would be appreciated. By the way I am a 56 year old Australian woman.

I recently had a cat scan performed, the results of which showed "nothing spectacular" according to my physician,"only a few small cysts on both kidneys." In addition, I was found to have a hiatal hernia and diverticulosis. Combining those results with the fact that I am 35 yrs. old and have a mitral valve prolapse, I intend to look into this further; as much of my research online suggests polycystic kidney disease. I intend on contacting a nephrologist and forwarding my reports and films to him. Should he shrug off the findings, as did my general doctor, then I will let it rest.
