Family history of coronary artery disease (genetic or hereditary factors) is one of the causes for heart attack (myocardial infarction).
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM or HOCM) - genetic disorder caused by various mutations in genes encoding sarcomeric proteins. In HCM the heart muscle is thickened, which can obstruct blood flow and prevent the heart from functioning properly.
The Brugada syndrome is a genetic disease that is characterised by abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) findings and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death. It is also known as Sudden Unexpected Death Syndrome (SUDS), and is the most common cause of sudden death in young men without known underlying cardiac disease in Thailand and Laos.

Some heart problems can run in families, but having said that, you have to factor in the 'nature vs nurture' debate. For example, if your relative's heart problems have been caused by eating too much junk food, and you eat healthilly, you wouldn't be at as much of a risk as them. There are other heart problems that you could still be at risk for even with a healthy lifestyle.

It might be worth going to the doctor about. There are tests they can do to see if there is anything abnormal with your heart. One type of test is an electrocardiogram, which is quick and easy and painless. They just stick some electrode patches on your skin around your heat and on each limb, and hook them up to a machine that measures the electrical activity. Another common test is an echocardiogram, which is basically an ultrasound of your heart.

To keep your heart as healthy as possible, avoid fatty foods, excess salt, loose weight if you are overweight, avoid high blood pressure and exercise regularly.

ya it can

The only thing you can control is your health. Eat right, exercise and mostly, do not smoke.

I would not worry about siblings that you are not full brother or sisters as much but heart disease definitely can be genetic. If someone has a father and mother that both have heart disease, there is a very good chance that their offspring will have heart disease in some form whether they eat healthy and exercise. I have had patients that have run 15 miles a day, ate very healthy, have never smoked or drank but still have severe heart disease related to genetics.

Some heart problems can run in families, but I wouldn't worry too much. When you get ready to start your own family, certainly tell your doctor about your medical history, but don't freak out about it. My Dad had serious problems with his heart, but I don't, my brother doesn't and neither my kids or my brother's have any heart issues.

Without knowing exactly what the heart problem is it's hard to comment, but yes, some heart conditions can be hereditary.
