Hi,
           Thanks for writing in. A cyst is a closed pocket or pouch of tissue that can form anywhere in the body. Simple Cysts or cortical cysts can be filled with air or fluid. Cysts that form on the kidneys usually contain fluid. One or more cysts may develop on small tubes in the kidneys. It is not an inherited condition. Simple kidney cysts become more common as people age.

Most often, simple cysts do not cause symptoms or harm the kidney. In some cases, however, pain can occur when cysts enlarge and press on other organs. Sometimes cysts become infected or suddenly start to bleed. Less often the cysts impair kidney function. People with simple cysts are often found to have high blood pressure, although the cause-and-effect relationship is not well understood.

Diagnosis is made with the help of CT Scan. Treatment is by two methods draining the cyst and the other one is removal of the cyst.
Consult your doctor for further assistance.
