my father underwent an ultrasound and detected a 17mm size cortical cyst in the lower pole region in the left kidney.(USG of the KUB). the test states that there is no evidence of renal calculus. The test also reveals Grade IIenlarged prostate with normal PVR urine volume. The Doctor has given few medicines for the prostate enlargement but says there is nothing to worry about the cyst.Is it so? Is there any case of worry for the future? Kindly advice.
