MRI is not the proper diagnostic modality to comment on cancer, but in case of a sinus pathology it is used first to rule out benign disease. Your sub centimeter lymph node can be ruled out as cancer with cent percent confidence. Mucosal retention cyst is also a benign disease . So nothing to be worried. consult your doctor.
