In brief: Yes

When you have joint abnormalities in one place, you tend to compensate in other joints which then leads to abnormal wear and tear in other locations.
Also, arthritis in one spot can indicate you are at risk in other places. Remain active, keep your weight down, and enjoy activity.

May also have referred pain in the extremities as a result of arthritic spurs in your spine.

In brief: At your age unlikely

But you may have a systemic arthritic disorder that is affecting multiple joints so you need to see a physician for an evaluation.
