tumor, cyst, and autoimmune disease?

Just yesterday I visited my OBGYN for what has been diagnosed as two vaginal sebaceous cysts and numerous sebaceous cysts below my breasts. The vaginal cysts are reoccuring, occuring on my labia minora following sex (presumably caused by friction). As for the cysts below my breasts, these are constant with one becomming infected occasionally. Within the past year I had an exploratory oophorectomy (single ovary) with a benign tumor the size of a melon being removed. In addition, I have had MRSA, I have gastrointestinal problems which still haven't been diagnosed, and also (whether related or not) I have a nasal polyp. What I am wondering is whether or not this is all related. I've been searching autoimmune diseases and things of the sort - and while some of the symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome seem to fit (dry eyes, fatigue, oral yeast infections, dry cough - since I've been a child, and joint pain), they also seem rather vague and not necessarily caused by something like this. Any information you could provide to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
