12 year old boy with cyst on kidney

My son is 12 years old he went to the hospital six months ago for an asthma attack they did some scans and found a cyst on the lower half of his kidney it has gotten bigger since it is now the size of a golf ball! The Dr.s are just doing ultrasounds for now, they say if it gets irritaed that they might have to remove his kidney, what exactly is the cause of this they dont seem to know. Is this very dangerous?  theres only one!
