  • Genetic factors
  • Alopecia areata
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormone changes after pregnancy
  • Menopause
  • Cancer Medication
  • Physical effect

Genetic factors

It is the most common cause of hair loss worldwide. If you have baldness pattern in your grandfather, father or similar ancestry, then you have the potential to have hair loss or baldness. It is not exactly like that. But too many of these situations are encountered. There may be many patients who are not bald in their family history.

Alopecia areata

It is a disease that develops when the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles (what holds the hair in place), causing hair loss.

Patients at Risk of Baldness

Chemotherapy

If you receive chemotherapy or have radiation treatment to your head or neck, you may lose all (or most of) your hair within a few weeks of starting treatment. Hair usually starts to regrow within months of finishing chemotherapy or radiation treatments

Menopause

Hormone changes in women going through the menopause can cause hair loss. This occurs because there is a decrease in the estrogen rate. Hair loss is expected to cease after a certain period of time. That is, the situation is usually temporary.

Cancer Medication

A possible side effect of some medications is hair loss. This may cause temporary hair loss as it will again cause hormone changes. When these treatments are over, hair loss is expected to stop. Most of the hair starts to grow again.

Physical effect

This is a situation of hair loss due to physical damage to the scalp, such as traffic accidents. Even if the hair does not shed, hair loss occurs because there is a problem in the skin.
