A cyst is a fluid filled structure. Cortical describes its location in the cortex, meaning the outer portion of the kidney. Mid pole is the middle portion of the kidney. There are different types of cysts. Simple cysts are harmless and may be ignored. Complex cysts range from harmless to cancerous. The features of the cyst will help the radiologist (the doctor interpreting the exam) determine whether the cyst is simple or complex. Depending on its features, complex cysts will need to be reimaged (with CT or ultrasound) or removed (with surgery).
