In brief: Not generally
There are two bundles or wires connecting the heart the right bundle and the left bundle.
Right bundle branch block is common and usually pretty normal. Left bundle branch block needs investigation.

Bundle branch block isn't really a disease, it's a physical or physiologic malfunction of conduction in a bundle branch of the electrical conduction system of the heart. You can be born with it, be injured into it, have inflammation or other biochemical/toxic causes. It can also be associated with some diseases.
