Comment from: Rose, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: June 21

I was diagnosed with cystic hygroma as a baby, fortunately only one area of my neck was affected. I underwent surgery at 18 months. I needed further surgery aged 9 years and 11 years. I have minimal side effect: some weakness in my left shoulder and a fairly impressive scar which I ignore and few people seem to notice! It is 74 years since the first surgery I'm here to tell the tale and offer reassurance if it's needed!
