It can be a genetic condition if it wasn't brought on by a dental surgery, sinus surgery or another traumatic injury.

I have an identical twin that does not suffer cluster headaches. I have a cousin and an uncle on my dad's side that do suffer clusters. I am the only female in my entire family that gets clusters. They are not hereditary but they tend to run in families.
