Thanks for writing to us.
The placental cyst that has been detected is not likely to cause hydrops fetalis. This baby has no hope of a normal life. Termination of the pregnancy is the best way. If precautions are not taken then this may be repeated in the next pregnancy too.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
