Hi, a cystic swelling means a swelling with fluid inside it. Usually the fluid is colourless/clear & odourless, it can be white & foul smelling when infected. Yes it is possible for her to get vomiting, if this is infected & is causing a fever.

Thanks for query,
This cyst is since birth?
From your history it seems to be infected.
As she is having fever and vomiting,it may be due to infection or some other systemic infection.
Consult your doctor for treatment as if vomiting persisted there is chances of having dehydration.
Ok and bye
