I am a 28 year old female and recently had a CT scan completed with and without contrast. On the report it said that I have a 9mm simple cyst on my right kidney. I have been having pain on my right side since early September both near the bottom of my ribcage and near where my kidney would be . I asked my Dr. if the cyst could be the problem and he said no and to not worry about it because all of my labs came back fine. So my question is, should I be concerned about the cyst. I also wanted to note that I just recently got a diagnoses of fibromyalgia. I also have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
