Kidney cyst: In a young person with your lab studies i would assume this is either a benign simple cyst or an abscess. See a urologist for a proper workup.
Dr. James Krick
Urology 36 years experience
Simple cyst : Simple renal cysts are relatively common. If on MRI or contrast enhanced ct or even a good ultrasound, they meet the criteria for simple cyst, there's really no reason for concern. Solitary cysts of the kidney (of this nature) are not associated with the symptoms and findings you described.

Not necessarily: Family history - mother's and father's, and sibling's - can suggest a predilection for ear infections, but it is only a tendency, not definite. If there is a family history, monitor closely.

I'm a man, should I get human papilloma virus vaccine to avoid genital warts and cancer?

Yes: The vaccine has been approved by the fda for ages 9-26 in men. The biggest advantage of the vaccine is to reduce the spread of the virus to women, which can be aided by reducing the number of men with the virus. Male genital cancer is much rarer than female cervical cancer, so the major benefit is preventing some types of warts an spread to women.
