Our expert says:
To determine if this is genetic, we will have to know the true cause of your brother's death. Is it possible that he had leukemia? In the light of his symptoms of easily bruising and bleeding, this might be the cause for his sudden death.
With this history in mind, I suggest that you urgently consult a doctor to have blood tests done, as well as a possible bone marrow biopsy to rule out blood cancer.
