In brief: Cysts in the Sinuses
What you are describing is cyst in the sphenoid sinus.
The most common sinus cyst is a mucus retention cyst. These are usually not concerning (benign) and dont require intervention unless they get big enough to obstruct an outflow tract. Your md will correlate the ct findings with your clinical findings (complaints) and let you know what you should do.

In brief: Frequently Not
This is a question best asked of the surgeon that got the ct scan as more details would be needed to get a more definitive answer.
