Welcome to ehealthforum.
Usually the small cysts disappear by the time of birth. If the cyst was small, it would not interfere with delivery.
Get a repeat scan done after 36 weeks to look for presence of and ascertain the size of the cyst in baby.
If the cyst is large enough to cause major changes in the abdominal girth of the baby, then it might be dangerous to go ahead with a normal vaginal delivery, as the pressure during childbirth can rupture the cyst causing harm (even death) in baby.
If the scan reveals no cyst or a very small cyst that is not caused abdominal girth to increase, then you can safely go ahead with a normal vaginal delivery provided there are no other contraindications during labour.
Take care.
