MRI shows cysts in sinus. Not dangerous?

I assume that an mri finding of "several mucous retention cysts in left maxillary sinus as well as right sphenoid sinus" is not a big deal as all that was mentioned to me was that maybe I should have a cat scan for a finding of "some well demarcated collection containing several Foci in my left mastoid bone" No one mentioned the sinus cysts to me and from what I read online I guess they are no big deal? Do you think that is why they weren't. Mentioned to me? Thanks

Thanks for writing to us.
The mucus retention cysts in the maxillary sinus are not worrisome as long as there are no signs of infection in the area. These can cause a recurrent sinusitis due to persistent infection.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
