It's not clear what causes simple kidney cysts. Simple kidney cysts typically occur as one cyst on the surface of a kidney. The risk of simple kidney cysts increases as you get older, though they can occur at any age. Nearly 30 percent of people over the age of 70 have at least one simple kidney cyst.
