Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

A cyst is an bubble like lesion which may contain either blood or fluids from the surrounding tissues.

This is not dangerous as it does not cause any problem to the foetus unless it ruptures and oozes out the blood and fluid.This rupture can occur when there straneous work causing pressure over the placenta.
