Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness is related to your genes and male sex hormones. It usually follows a pattern of a receding hairline and your hair beginning to thin around the crown area on your head.

The majority of men that experience male pattern baldness start noticing their hair loss in their mid to late twenties. Around the age of 20, a large percentage of men have noticed at least some visible hair loss.

This type of hair loss comes down to genetics, or having a family history of baldness. However, it is associated with male sex hormones. Male pattern baldness is also sometimes caused through certain cancers, medications, thyroid conditions and anabolic steroids.

Genetic Hair loss commonly occurs in adult men, with the likelihood of it increasing as you age. Hair loss can appear in many different ways, depending on what’s causing it. It can come on suddenly or gradually over time.

While you don’t need to treat this type of hair loss, treatment options do exist. Treatment can reduce further hair loss, and some men will be able to regrow some of their hair. The men who tend to see the best results start their treatment soon after they notice the hair loss. There is various treatment’s you are able to choose from however discussing the matter with your GP will enable you to choose the right one for you.

Genetic hair loss doesn’t necessarily affect your physical health. However, it can have an impact on you psychologically which can result in you having negative feeling or thoughts about your image which can impact your behaviour. This can also trigger feelings such as stress, anxiety and depression.
