In brief: Yes

It's quite variable in its expression.
You should be able to get a test before birth.

In brief: Yes it is

It is autosomal dominant.
It would be difficult to detect but if a parent had it then your doctor would be very suspicious about it. It is possible to do a amniocentesis and then a very special dna test on that fluid, but it would require a special lab to do the test, it is not in the routine.
