I'm 19 years old a guy,  my dad is bald is it possible to me be bald?

See below: Most (especially in male) baldness is inherited. You could skip one, two or many generations and then suddenly the gene shows up. There is a hormonal mismatch (too much dht) on the scalp which is toxic to hair follicles. The less common causes are local fungal and other infections of scalp. ...Read more

Why do guys who are bald have much rounder and pointer heads than guys who don't get bald? Is skull growth a contributor to male pattern baldness?

Why do guys who are bald have much rounder and pointer heads than guys who don't get bald? Is skull growth a contributor to male pattern baldness?

Science: I like this question and i like that you are asking it. But, as a physician i can guarantee you that your hypothesis, that all balding men have a specific head shape, is incorrect. Men who are balding or are bald have every normal shape of head as any other population. Head shape in no way is a contributor to male pattern baldness. Great question though. ...Read more

Is male pattern baldness 100% hereditary?Could a guy who eats greasy sugary fast food daily grow old with a full set of hair depending on genes?

Is male pattern baldness 100% hereditary?Could a guy who eats greasy sugary fast food daily grow old with a full set of hair depending on genes?

Maybe. Maybe not.: A "full set" of hair at age 90 is not the same amount of hair as a "full set" of hair at age 19. Such a guy could be normal at both age 19 and 90, and have a "full set" of hair at age 19 and at 90, but will have a lot fewer hairs in his "full set" at age 90. Reality is reality. Don't worry about the hair. It's just hair. ...Read more

Why is my baby bald?

"resting phase": For those who remember all the steps of mitosis from high school, they remember that after anaphase and telophase (the dna splits up to form two distinct nucleii), the cells rest. If there's a major shock to the system, the cells enter a second resting phase, then "die" while new cells pop up. Thus from birth, the hair cells enter resting phase, and hair falls out, to be replaced in a few months. ...Read more
