What causes hypertrophic cardiomyopathy?

my son, (16 years old), seen a cardiologist today to check for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, (I have this disease), doctor told him if he does nt have the disease by now there is only a slight chance he would get it. Also told him not to bother getting checked again in the future. Is this true? Not what my dr. told me.
