hyperthyroid and ovarian cancer

I am 53 years old and had a hysterectomy in 1978. they left my ovaries due to my age. Last year I was diagnosed with graves disease and papillary carcinoma and my thyroid was removed. recently they have discovered several cysts on my ovaries. Two on the left 2.5 cm and 3 on the right 1.5 cm.(diagnosis brought on by pain) I have not got the final results yet but they apppear to be fluid in nature. I have read that odd's are higher to get cancer due to hyperthyroid. No ovarian cancer in family. Hysterectomy done due to endometriosis.
I have also read that indigestion can be a symptom and I have been dealing with problems with that for a couple years Should this be aggressively taken care of or would medications and waiting be appropriate in such a case?
