How is male pattern baldness diagnosed?

Hair loss can be diagnosed with a physical exam and medical history.

Most hair loss is diagnosed as male pattern baldness, but if you’re young, female, or experiencing unusual hair loss, then your doctor may want to rule out other possible causes.

A dermatologist or hair loss specialist can examine your scalp to identify the pattern and degree of your hair loss.

Your doctor may also tug at a few hairs and examine your hair follicles.
