    I believe you should see your doctor and he will prescribe the tests to find out the cause. If you have pain it might be due to kidney stones. Here are two links for kidney cyst and kidney stones.

    a kidney stone is solidified waste in the urine. A kidney cyst is a growth of tissue inside the kidney. Please look into both Western and alternative treatments if you have either. Healthy kidneys are important - I've already lost one brother to kidney disease, and my father-in-law is alive because a kidney problem was found early and treated promptly and well.

    Kidney stones are the most common urological problem and often very painful.  While most small stones pass through the system without medical intervention, some are larger are much more painful. The stones are made up of different minerals, but calcium is the most common. There are medical procedures to remove these stones. It is important to stay well hydrated when the temperatures are very hot, particularly if you are prone to kidney stones.

    Kidney cysts are little sacs of fluid and if you have one your will probably not have symptoms, however, you may have several, which will require a medical assessment and possible treatment. Typical symptoms are dull pain and fever. A number of kidney cysts can become a serious problem and compromise the kidney function, so don't ignore the symptoms.

    Stones are literally stones, an accumulation of minerals that resemble stones and cysts are growths of tissue. If possible removing stones is done without surgery but can be very painful.
