Male Pattern Hair Loss
The term “common baldness” usually means male pattern or permanent pattern baldness, scientifically known as androgenetic alopecia as the role of androgen's (male hormones) in its occurrence is well understood. It usually begins at the age of 30 but can occur at any age after puberty. Men who have this type of hair loss usually inherit the trait. In this type of baldness, hair loss typically results in a receding hairline and loss hair on the top of the head. It is generally recognised that men in their 20’s have a 20 percent incidence of male pattern baldness, in their 30’s a 30 percent incidence of male pattern baldness, in their 40’s a 40 percent incidence of male pattern baldness, etc. Male pattern baldness is an inherited condition and the gene can be inherited from either the mother or father’s side.
