See a specialist: You have multiple fibroids and the treatment options are complicated. You need to discuss these findings with the doctor who ordered the mri. The ovarian cyst is fairly large but if simple then it may resolve on its own. If you have surgery for the fibroids then the surgeon can deal with the cyst also. This is not an internet question with only 400 character answers! :) best wishes.

What symptoms?: Simple ovarian cysts are benign. Premenopausal women produce cysts every month, some grow larger, and can cause pain or other symptoms. Fibroids are benign smooth muscle growths (tumors) that can cause symptoms, and if near the inner uterine lining , can have a negative effect on fertility or increase miscarriage rates. Please discuss your concerns and these findings with your ob/gyn.
