Male Pattern Baldness

MPB usually starts at the temples, where the hair gradually recedes to form the shape of an "M". This hair often becomes finer and does not grow as long as it once did. Next, the hair on the crown of the head begins to thin out and eventually the top points of the "M" meet the thin spot on the crown.

Over time, a horse-shoe pattern of hair around the sides of the head develops. The remaining hairs in the balding areas usually become finer and grow at a slower rate. Since this type of male hair loss is largely hereditary, a man can often predict the extent of his future baldness by examining family portraits.

Roughly 50% of children with a balding parent of either sex will inherit the dominant baldness gene and eventually display similar characteristics.
