If they are simple fluid cysts, there is no need for concern about these cysts or need for further followup

The CT scan is a more detailed image of the kidney and provides better resolution as to what is going on. When there is a question as to what we see on the ultrasound, a CT scan is performed. If your doctor is on sure whether not this is truly a simple cyst, then I would recommend a referral to a urologist for peace of mind. Hope this helps.

THE SWELLING IS THE ANKLE THE FOOT THE TOES AND ON LEFT I THINK THE LEG TOE TOO FEELS PAINFUL SOME

This could deb due to poor circulation, a blood clot in the leg, or fluid retention. You need to see your doctor for an exam in the next 1-2 days.
