I would highly recommend removal of this cyst given its size as it could rupture or twist and become an emergency.  In terms of the question of the what a nodule on a cyst means is that their is a solid area in a cyst.  A cyst is like a fluid filled balloon.  There is always a risk of cancer if the cyst has any solid components.  I would discuss this further with your gynecologist as there are many things that go into accessing risk of cancer.
