Brief Answer:
Follow up ultrasounds advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
I have reviewed the report.
It shows a cyst in the fetal abdomen.
This can be a enteric duplication cyst, ovarian cyst, mesenteric cyst etc.
The renal pelvis is only slightly dilated, so it can be functional and is likely to resolve after delivery.
The abdominal cyst, if not affecting other adjacent organs, can be followed up in 2 weekly ultrasound and if size remains static, then the treatment can be done in the neonatal period.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Regards

Thanks a lot doctor. We are getting the scan done again to get second opinion. Can you let me know if this can be treated during pregnancy? If not, how is it treated during neonatal period?

Fetal aspiration

Hi dear, if the cyst do not increases in Pregnancy, then nothing needs to be done.
