Cyst on the brain of children

My child passed out a couple of nights ago.  He had been sick during the first part of the week and running a fever.  He wasn't eating good, but was eating small amounts.  He is a very good size child for his age.  He is 9 and weighs 110 pounds.  I know the weight is high for his age, however he is almost 5 feet tall also.  He is a very big child.  But, my issue is he has constantly complained with headaches for 2 years now.  He complains with a headache everyday.  But, this last week when he was sick and passed out on me.  I also thought he was taking a seizure because he started jerking.  Then he just stopped moving and I couldn't feel or hear him breathing.  He became non-responsive.  Of course after calling 911 and getting him to the hospital they done blood work and a ct scan.  The blood work was good.  The ct scan showed a cyst on his brain.  They said they didn't think him passing out had anything to do with the cyst on his brain.  But, my question to you is; What would cause a cyst on his brain? Can they tell how long the cyst has been there?  How will this effect him longterm?  I haven't ever dealt with anything like this.  They have an MRI scheduled for him on Wed. of this week.  Even if they say this cyst isn't something that I should worry about how true is that statement?  Any foreign matter in your body can't be good right?  Please help!  I just need to know if my worries will lead to where I'm terrified it could; cancer.  Because cancer runs high in our family.

Thank You for any help you can give me.
