possible cyst causing sciatica?

I have had sciatic pain since about december 2009. I had a mri done about a month ago and they found a cyst near my right ovary (the sciatic pain is on the right side as well). the mri report said that it was a 4.5 cm cystic structure on my right ovary.

i never got it checked out because i thought that it would just go away-well recently, i went to a spine doctor for a herninated disc they found on the mri. the doctor told me that the herniated disc in my lower back is very small and is not causing the sciatica nerve pain ( i was already previously given steriods and anti-immflammory drugs, but they did nothing). i made an appointment with my gyno, but its not till 2 weeks from now!

I dont know what to do in the meantime. it seems like it is getting worse, and i am have trouble getting comfortable at night because the numbness/tingling sensation has gotten worse, to the point were it is sharp stabbing pain down the side of my right leg.

I just wanted to know if anyone else ever experienced this and could a cyst really cause this much pain? the report indicated that the cyst wasis 4.5 cm. should i expect some form of surgery? or what are other treatment options? does anyone know what kind of cyst this could be? or am i wasting my money by going to countless doctors??
