What made the doctor get a chest xray on you?
I found some links that describe cystic lung disease, from what I have read there are many disorders that fall under this label. I would ask your doctor what this all means, the prognosis, treatment if any etc...I wish I could help more. Here are those links:
This one is from Boston regarding pediatric patients with cystic lung disease:
