A scientific hypothesis is simply an if...then statement. Perhaps you are caught up in thinking a hypothesis is a question. This is a common mistake that many people make, some times repeatedly.

If such and such a disease is genetic in nature then we should possibly be able to find the contributory gene(s) in the genome.

That simple and no question mark.

You know what's really weird scientifically speaking of course ? When my husband was diagnosed with cancer in his early 30's I really hated when people only talked to us about his illness ... I hated it so much cos I felt like people were walking on eggshells around us and that annoyed me sooo much :) but I also hated when people completly pretended it wasn't there as well :/ so my square root of that hypothesis is that..... I really don't have.a freakin' clue then :)
