In brief: Acromegaly

That would be an extremely rare situation, to my knowledge there are no hereditary links in acromegaly.

In brief: Only rarely

The great majority of cases of acromegaly are what we call sporadic, that is not familial.
If a family member has or had acromegaly, and you think that you have symptoms, a simple blood test will confirm or deny your concerns.
