I do not think there is a relation between ovarial cysts and thyroid duct cysts. The thyroid cyst can easily be treated with surgery or a new procedure called inteventional thyroid ultrasound where the fluid is evacuated with a 25 gauge needle under guidance of ultrasound. This has a 80% success rate of treating a thyroid cyst.
