A few men are only in their twenties when they begin to lose hair, but by the time men reach their fifties, more than 50% of them have what doctors would call ‘significant hair loss’. While some of the loss could be caused by scalp infections, diseases, or by habits like pulling out the hair, for most men it falls into the category of male pattern baldness, also called androgenetic alopecia.

What is Male Pattern Baldness (MPB)

Male pattern baldness is due at least partly to your genes, and an inherited susceptibility to certain chemicals present in the body. It is very common, and it is not a disease, even though for many of us it probably gives as much grief as one.

Much research has gone into hair loss, and scientists and doctors now understand the mechanism of male pattern baldness much better than they used to, and they have developed many innovative treatments for MPB-related hair loss in men.

Hie! I am Pranit Urankar, hair fall problem is a fearful factor that is increasing day by day, especially in Men, as compared to women men face a serious hair loss at early or middle age stages. The causes may be many like stress, not having proper diet, genetic problems etc.. As a medical counselor my advice would be if you are suffering hair loss problem please do consult some good hair transplant surgeon, and get it rectified and treated. Thank You!
