Is tinnitus hereditary?


Peyman - Well, I certainly don't know of a tinnitus gene and people working on the human genome project haven't discovered one as far as I know. There may be a genetic predisposition in some people when they're exposed to loud sounds, but it is not clear whether there is a genetic link. So I would say at the moment, negative.
