In brief: Possibly
It is one cause that should be evaluated, but ethnicity and genetics play a big part as well.
See your doctor.

In brief: Possibly
Excess body hair can be due to high levels of testosterone, dhea, androstendione, genetic (many south asians/middle eastern and mediterrean descent) can have more hair as well as tumors can cause this.
Speak with your doctor to see if you need further testing and then consider laser hair removal to remove it rather than waxing for the rest of your life.
