Anyone have any insight?

I have been dealing with spine (from cervical to lumbar) for a little over 2 decades now. I am a 38 year old female. Just had an mri done to prove to the dr's that the pain is getting worse, only to find that there is a new finding... Below is a copy and paste of part of the report. Has anyone dealt with this and could you suggest how to approach this with my hc team?

Perineural/Tarlov cyst within the sacral spinal canal at the level of the S2 vertebral body with associated scalloping of the posterior cortex of the S2 vertebral body and with findings suggestive of moderate mass effect onto the adjacent thecal sac and moderate mass effect exerted on to the descending right S2 nerve root which appears compressed against the right lateral aspect of the sacral spinal canal at the level of the S2 vertebral body.

From what I'm reading I'm petrified.
