NO: It is not spread to kids. It is a benign growth of the lymphatics.

No...: Lymphangiomas are not contagious or transmittable from one to another. They either occur congenitally (genetically) or can be acquired due to inflammation, trauma, or something obstructing the lymph system. Hope that helps!
