Hi! I am 32 years old & 9 weeks pregnant with my 4th baby. (3 were c-section). 1st visit to gyno revealed a 2cm cyst in uterus. Is it very serious?

In brief: No

Let your track record speak for itself! if you've had 3 healthy pregnancies in the past, statistically for your young age group you should be fine.
You need to follow up with your doctor regularly to make sure the "cyst" doesn't enlarge. As long as you feel fine, good weight gain and baby is growing well, don't go looking for a pandora's box to open. When diagnosis becomes clear, your OB will help.

In brief: No

A "cyst" in the wall of the uterus would be unusual by probably not dangerous at all.
A small fibroid (or "uterine leiomyoma" ) is more common, but unlikely to cause you any problems. Fibroids are benign (not cancerous) growths of muscle and are very common in the uterus, especially as we get older.
