Cystic hygroma is more likely. However Soft tissue USG or MRI will clinch the diagnosis.

Most probably cystic hygrometer. confirm with U.Sound & CT.

cystic hygroma please

Usg usually gives a very good information in neck swellings and cheap too. Plan for a biopsy along with usg guidance. this will clinch the diagnosis. but if it is asymptomatic and not increasing in size, better to plan treatment after some years.
