I had a ultrasound exam in 2006 and then twice this year (2008). Unbeknowing to me the 2006 exam showed the presense of a parapelvic cyst. It was again visible in the 2008 exams. My right kidney was removed in 1961. The cyst is present in the left kidney. I have experienced long term discomfort like muscel soreness in the left flank and both front and back of the body midsection around the lower rib cage. I also have a constant mild headache in the left lower skull area behind the ear. Can the cyst be the cause of these symptoms?
