My son is 16 and has cystic hygroma up his back, shoulder and neck.

it is all  wrapped around his blood vessels and nerves therefore cannot have surgery. it occasionally caused him discomfort a few years ago and became very large and painful, however the last 2 years he hasnt felt any kind of pain and the cystic hygroma has not been acknowledgable due to it being so minor. however his gcse exams have just started and now it has flared up very badly, he used to take naproxen to help but now it is no longer working, he does not want to go to hospital. is there any major risks associated with his problem and stress (his exams) or will it be another episode like a few years ago? unsure whether to take him to hospital or if im worrying to much, many thanks xxx
