The complications associated with this condition are bleeding, cellulitis (an inflammation of body tissue) and the leakage of lymph fluid. They may also form the lymph angiosarcoma. These conditions also develop due to the extensive radiotherapy. The cystic hygroma can cause dysphagia, respiratory troubles and infections.

The patients suffering from these conditions must receive a cytogenetic analysis. It helps to determine the abnormalities of chromosomes. The patients must receive a genetic counseling as this condition can occur in the subsequent pregnancies. The complications which occur after the removal of cystic hygroma include the injury to the structures present in neck, infection and the recurrence of this condition.
