Excision if desired: The cystic hygroma is usually suspected due to size, location & characteristics. Laboratory examination of the excised mass confirms the initial assessment. Small defects may be left alone if desired. Many larger defects can interfere with general functions & should be removed.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
