Data on the incidence and prevalence of cystic hygroma in England has only been collected since 2015 by the National Congenital Anomaly and Rare Disease Registration Service (NCARDRS) at Public Health England.

Based on data collected by NCARDRS, the prevalence figures for cystic hygroma were approximately four per 10,000 in 2015 and four per 10,000 in 2016. Completed 2017 data will be available in February 2019.
