Will a lymphangioma eventually grow smaller and go away on its own?

In brief: Not likely
The information i found indicates they tend to not be bothersome but does not indicate they involute and resolve on their own.
The definitive treatment at this time seems to be surgical excision. If the lymphngioma is not a medical emergency consider talking with a chinese medicine practioner and see what they have to offer. Ask a surgeon as well.

In brief: No
Lymphangiomas are defects of the lymphatic system not to be confused with hemangiomas.
Hemangiomas are known to involute as the child grows older after the first year of life. Lymphangiomas often require surgical excision if they are large. Emergency surgery is reserved for those lesions involving the airway.
