CT scan showed deviation in nasal septum, mucous retention cysts. Will treatment include surgery?

My CT scan showed a 4 mm deviation to the nasal septum . Is this a large deviation? I have had frequent sinusitus and have been treated for about 9 months with different antibiotics . The scan also showed two mucous retentions cysts that are causing issues. Do you feel that surgery would be involved to help relieve my problems? Thank you. Lynn G.
