Bald head: Male Pattern baldness

About


This is the most common type of hair loss which is present in men, also known as androgenetic alopecia.


The proportion of men that have moderate to extensive hair loss increased with increasing age, ranging from 16% for men 18-29 years of age to 53% of men 40-49 [2].


- The condition is incurable.
- Usually self-diagnosable
- Lab tests or imaging not required
- Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong


MPHL is an inherited condition, caused by a sensitivity to the effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in some areas of the scalp. DHT is believed to shorten the growth of the hair cycle from a usual duration of 3–6 years to just weeks or months.


It affects generally about half of the male population over the age of 50 [4].


Symptoms


- excessive loss and thinning of hair
- hairline receding from the front, that is, temples
- reduction in the density of hair;
- bald patch on top of the scalp;
- complete baldness at a later stage.


Treatment
