Causes of Hair Loss in Men
Hair loss in men can be caused by any number of conditions, but by far the most common cause is hereditary male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). Male pattern baldness is so common, in fact, that it affects over 50 million men ranging in age from their late teens to late adulthood in just the United States alone.
Other factors contributing to hair loss in men can include extreme stress to the central nervous system such as may be seen in “long covid” sufferers, as well as hair loss as a side effect of medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy. There are numerous scalp conditions which can also cause thinning hair and hair loss in men as well.
