See a dermatologist: It is certainly possible that your hair loss on top is a part of your described male pattern baldness. It can happen at your age. However, an examination of your scalp and pattern of hair loss would be best to determine if there are any other explanations. A dermatologist is most often the best person to see though some primary care doctors are comfortable evaluating hair loss.
