In brief: Yes

Angina is the name given to chest pain caused by insufficient blood flow through the coronary arteries to the heart muscle.
Blockages in these arteries are caused by cholesterol accumulations that develop inside these arteries due to several risk factors including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity , cigarette smoking and a family history of coronary disease. This often runs in families.
