Infant has fluid filled cyst growth on the back, clinical examination showed peritoneal fluid collection. Will it disappear by itself?

my 2 month baby has a congenital defect. She is having a fluid filled cyst like growth on her back (to the right hand side). On clinical examination doctors said it is a peritoneal fluid collection and it is below the skin but above the muscular layer. I want to know whether it will disappear by itself or want any treatment
