Male Pattern Baldness
The most common type of hair loss in men is male pattern baldness, clinically referred to as androgenic alopecia. Most men with this type of hair loss have a family history of the condition, and studies have shown that it is triggered by irregular levels of androgens, the hormones that regulate hair growth. Male pattern baldness develops when there is an imbalance of androgens that stops the cycle of hair growth. At the onset of this type of hair loss in men, the hair may appear finer than other hair on the scalp. The hair will also not grow as long before being shed from the scalp. The changes in hair structure is not always obvious, so men may just notice an area of thinning hair.
The phrase “male pattern baldness” refers to the areas of the scalp that tend to lose hair, such as:
- A pattern of receding hairline that mimics the letter “M” (more hair at the center of the upper forehead than the temple area)
- Hair loss on the crown of the head
- Thinning and balding in the temple area
