Kidney MRI shows exophytic cyst

Indeterminate left renal lesion seen on recent noncontrast CT scan. So my doctor ordered MRI. I have MRI abdomen combination Contrast: GAD 0.2 ml/kg was done recently.
Multiplanar multisequence renal MRI protocol was performed with subtraction imaging.

Findings: There was a 2.5 cm exophytic cyst extending anteriorly from the interpolar left kidney. This cyst demonstrates a few thin almost imperceptible septations and a thin almost imperceptible wall. A soft tissue nodular component was not seen. Note was made an 8mm simple cyct in the interpolar right kidney.

2.5 cm septated Bosniak IIF exophytic cyst extending anteriorly from the interpolar left kidney.

What is the difference between exophytic cyst and simple cyct?
Is exophytic cyst means cancer in layman language?

Do I have cyst in both Kidneys? I am ot sure?

Does it need surgery or medicines?

Please help to explain this report in layman language.

Thanks

I am not a doctor. I can answer one question, exophytic cyst is something that grows outside the kidney, its not in the kidney and it does not mean cancer. nothing to worry
