Question: I am 20 years old and over the past year I have noticed much less hair on the top of my head… my hair line has not changed however the crown of my head is beginning to feel and look very thin with noticeable small patches. I am really worried as to what I should do to ensure that if is in fact Male Pattern Baldness, I take the necessary steps as soon as possible.
Answer: Hi, Izzy. It is possible to have male pattern baldness without your hairline being affected.
A thinning crown and/or thinning along the top of your scalp can appear without you developing a receding hairline as well. Just as some men may develop a receding hairline but no other hair thinning.
The best thing to do in order to confirm the precise cause of your shedding is to have a hair loss consultation. That way an expert can diagnose your hairloss condition and provide you with professional advice and treatment recommendations to help reverse your hair loss.
