Does a homozygous gene mutation, e.g. 1p36.3, make me more likely to have other mutations in nearby genes on the same chromosome, e.g.1p34.1?

In brief: No

Gene mutations are still being researched and from my opinion, I don't think we're even close to scratching the surface of the miraculous human genome.
That being said, mutations are a normal part of our evolution. Is therea reason you're concerned? If we know, you will likely get an answer sooner.
