Baldness or Alopecia may be genetic, simply ageing or as a result of underlying local or systemic disease. It can be divided into non-scarring or scarring.
Non-scarring baldness in men, is extremely common, often runs in families (genetic). Hair loss normally begins in the frontal areas or over the crown. If it starts early i.e. in late teens, it normally results in extensive hairloss. It is rare for women to have bald areas, more normally there is thinning.
