In brief: These typically are

Incidental or accidental findings on some patients' mri's as they occur usually without any symptoms except in older patients with bone density loss and when large can cause bone erosion sometimes leading to a sacral fracture but otherwise of no consequence and most likely unrelated to your symptoms.
See a spine specialist for a specific evaluation.
