Cystic Hygroma

We are 13 weeks pregnant with our first baby and found out that our little one has a cystic hygroma on his neck that travels from his crown to his rump. We were also told that the little guy has Klinefelter's disorder which happens to 1 in 500 males, but is not always symptomatic.

I would like to know if anyone out there has been given the diagnosis of a cystic hygroma that "works itself out". Does the cyst go away or do they typically get worse, leading to hydrops and death?

Thank you for your help!
