Unlikely: Small mucus retention cysts are common findings in sinuses imaging, unless it obstructs sinus drainage or cause recurrent sinusitis, rare, it is just observed, a coincidental finding. At any rate the doctor who ordered the MRI, for whatever reason can explain, if you do have other sinus problems, see an ENT specialist, good luck
