I have noticed that i have started receding slightly on the sides of my head. Could be as you say just a muturing hairline, but recently I have noticed a little divit in the very middle of my hairline right between the eyes. I have always had it a little bit..bit it has recently gotten worse. Is this male pattern balding?
Without pictures it is difficult to make a diagnosis. These divots in the hairline that you are referring to may be the early part of hair loss in a forelock. Some genetic patterns have weak forelocks. I need to know your age, see pictures and get a family history from you. When this happens in the forelock, you often can see the same pattern in the family. If you are above 30 years old, these changes reflect a less aggressive ‘progressive’ hair loss that may be controlled by Propecia. If you are under 25, then this could be a reflection of a more aggressive pattern of hair loss and as you record the degree of miniaturization that is present around it, a good doctor can predict what may actually happen to you and estimate the time-frame it may occur. If you send me good photos, they will be kept private (a medical record requires privacy by law) and then we can arrange a time when we can speak and I will personally give you a private consultation. Without seeing you in person, such a consultation may or may not fully address the diagnosis, but it is a starting point.
