Is it common for a 36y pt to have multiple bilateral renal cysts, hepatic cysts, splenic cyst, and adrenal cyst all at once? Shall I worry about mets?

Something else

Cyst
Do you have a diagnosis? Family history of Polycystic Kidney Disease? Radiologist is probably best Dr to talk to as will correlate your history with specific cyst patters seen on imaging. Will also be able to recommended additional diagnostic tests & use intervention techniques to diagnose, drain & treat as needed. APCKD > hydatid cysts can do this. Confirm its adrenal cyst vs adenoma,

If person has "bilateral renal cysts", does that mean it's cancer?

No.

Cancer
"Bilateral renal cysts" means that both kidneys (right and left) contain cysts. While some kidney cancers may be cystic, most renal cysts are benign. It would be good to ask the doctor who ordered the imaging study that found the renal cysts what he/she thinks of these cysts and the likelihood that they might be cancer. Every case is unique. Hope that this helps.

I have pelvic ultrasound yesterday and found out tiny non obstructing Nephrolithiasis, bilateral; small renal cyst measuring 9mm, left.Should i worry?

No

Nephrolithiasis
Small kidney cysts are pretty common. And small non obstructing stones should not cause much issue especially if you have a history of prior stones. If concerned, check with your urologist or physician who ordered the tests.

What is significance of small bilateral renal cortical cysts if renal function tests are normal???

Not much, but

Kidney_disease
Need a follow up ultrasound in a few years to see if increasing suggestive of polycystic kidney disease (PKD). If this is the case there is a chance to lose kidney function over long years. It is not a cancer. But increasing cysts number and size can overtake kidneys. Chances are, none of that will happen to you. But, better safe than sorry. PKD is a benign and slow condition but may cause failure

In my KUB Ultrasound, the result is Renal Parenchymal Disease, bilaterally, and Renal Cortical Cyst, Bozniak II. My Creatinine is ok. Will I die now?

Not from kidney dz

Cyst
The medical parenchymal disease sounds like scarring of kidney. Make sure your blood pressure is perfect and you are not taking ibuprofen. The renal cyst is a fluid filled sack in the kidney. They are common. Bosniak 2 is a cyst with a septation or calcium deposit. A 2a cyst is begn and does not need follow up. A 2b cyst needs follow up because a small percentage can turn into renal cancers.
