I’m a 20 year old with a question about balding and family genetics. I have a maternal grandfather who is is almost in his 80s who has a huge full head of hair, and a father who is bald. What are my chances of going bald?
There’s no telling. The balding gene can come from the maternal or paternal side and can skip generations. There’s no easy predictor just by looking at the family history, but with your father’s baldness, you do have some risk.
