There is no way to give you a diagnosis based on the tests you listed.  These tests are just one tool doctors use to help diagnose conditions, but the tests alone don't offer a diagnosis.  Also, we aren't doctors on this board, so info. we provide is just our opinion or understanding of the facts.  

The tests you listed are for different things.  The CA-125 is a tumor marker test that is useful for women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  Your result is slightly elevated.  An elevated result does not mean you have cancer since benign conditions can cause an elevated result.  You mention you have had a cyst for 5 years...how large is it?  Is it simple or complex?  These are things to ask your doctor.     Most cysts go away on their own but five years is a long time to have the same cyst.  If a cyst persists and grows, it should be surgically removed and biopsied.

The other tests you list are thyroid function tests.  Your doctor will have to take these test results in consideration with your symptoms and other test results in order to give you a diagnosis.  Good luck!
