A cystic hygroma is a development that commonly happens in the head and neck area. A cystic hygroma occurs as the infant grows in the womb. It forms from pieces of material that carry fluid and leukocyte. This material is called embryonic lymphatic tissue. After birth, a cystic hygroma usually resembles a soft bulge under the skin. The cyst might not be found at birth.
