Parkinson at 28 rare: Parkinson's disease variants run in a few families, and cause disease in younger patients. Parkinson's also is associated with some genes that increase risk. However, it is almost unheard of at age 28, and your risk with a grandfather who has parkinson's is probably no more than that in the population.
