My dad started balding at the age of 40, and now at the age of 60 he shows diffused hairloss on top of scalp. I am 26 and I started to show the begining of his pattern last year. In your experience, is there any correlation between the dad’s age of balding, and the son’s, provided that the only “gene” for baldness comes from the dad? Can I maybe expect some stabilization now untill a later age?
Thanks a lot
I am just a doctor, not a fortune teller. Male pattern hair loss is genetic, but there are no firm correlations on how it is passed on from father to son and at what age it will occur. Most bald men experience balding early on in their 20’s and 30’s. If your hair loss follows your father’s pattern and rate of hair loss, you might assume that will be your destiny. Find others in your family (mother and father’s side) and see whose patterns reflect the pattern of your hair loss.
