Hi.... I understand your concern. I have just read through your query. I also suggest that you go ahead with the surgery as your paediatric surgeon has suggested after going through the MRI report. Surgery is the only curative option for this cystic hygroma, but recurrence is also a possibility. So I suggest that you keep that in mind before going ahead with surgery.
