Hi MelodiousFox,

I am an adult with a Lymphatic Malformation(LM), the newer term for this condition. Depending on where the LM is located, it may compromise a person's airway or cause other complications that can possibly be life-threatening, although the average LM will not kill anyone. No true LM is considered malignant, nor will it ever become malignant. A child with a LM may go through multiple treatments(surgery, scelotherapy/injections, etc.), but they can live a life that is close to normal. If you want more information and are on facebook, look up the page lymphatic malformation awareness, which has lots of good information about what LMs are, treatment options, and helpful links. Take care.
